  • A company cannot run on one person’s work alone. They are given helpers to complete tasks. These helpers should be empowered to make decisions and come up with ideas. Sometimes all delegating means is for one person to come up with an innovative idea in order to help the leadership crew to maintain a better work environment.
  • By giving proper delegation it can help to train and groom employees for more responsibilities within the company at a future time.
  • One employee should not be responsible for all of the tasks in the company. If the other employees are not capable it is possible that they have not been given the chance to prove themselves.
  • For an example; Imagine that you are a parent that has 3 children. You need one of the children to watch the others while you are completing a task in the yard. The children are close in age. However, there is one child that seems more appropriate because he or she is more responsible.
  • You would need to explain to the employee exactly what needs to be done in any situation that may arise.
  • If an employee is given a task that he or she needs the support of his coworkers it will be the leaders responsibility to let the other employees know. A leader must make sure that his or her employee is able to obtain everything needed to complete the task.
  • Keep an eye on the employee and help when needed.
  • If the employee did all the tasks that was expected the leader should follow up with a reward. Showing appreciation will make employees continue to strive hard.
