By delegating certain responsibilities, you can make your team stronger and more productive.
Here at KB Staffing, we appreciate a hard worker. However, we understand that no one person can do everything all the time. Delegation is an important part of any workplace running smoothly. When you have a strong team that understands what their goals are you can accomplish a great deal. Here’s why delegation is important and how it can strengthen your team.
Delegation Is Key to Success
Whether you are working in an office, a construction site, or a production floor, there will be times when you have more on your plate than you can handle. Don’t be afraid to delegate! Easing your workload and letting others help can improve overall production.
- Delegation establishes trust. We all have a tendency to feel like no one can do our job as well as us, and while that may be true, allowing your teammates to take on some responsibilities shows that you have faith in their ability to do a good job.
- Increase flexibility of your team. Cross-training is always a benefit to employees. It makes them more useful to the company, keeps them active during downtime, and provides coverage for unexpected absences or other unforeseen delays in productivity.
- Frees up your own time. By delegating some tasks, you give yourself more time and space to focus on others.
Things to Remember When Delegating
It’s important to keep in mind that delegation isn’t about shirking your own responsibilities – it’s about getting the job done. Remember these tips when delegating:
- Pick the right person for the job. Familiarize yourself with your teammates’ abilities so you don’t hand off a job to someone who can’t handle it.
- Allow yourself the time to clearly explain what you want done and how. It’s frustrating to be tasked with something when you don’t know what is expected.
- Don’t micromanage. Once you’ve delegated and explained a task, let them do it. You aren’t saving yourself any time by hovering.
- Thank them. Show your teammates your appreciation for their hard work.
