The Art of Delegation: How to Stop Micromanaging and Let Your Team Shine 🌞
Hey there, it's Captain Crush, and today we're talking about a topic that's near and dear to my heart: delegation. As leaders, we often think we can do it all. But the truth is, if you micromanage your team and refuse to delegate you’re sure to crash instead of crush... ain’t nobody got time for that.
So how do you become a delegation ninja? First, you gotta trust your team. If you don’t trust them, then why the hell did you hire them to begin with? As the great Ronald Reagan once said,
"The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things."
Another key to delegation is setting clear expectations. An old boss I once had always said “inspect what you expect.” Be crystal clear about what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and why it should be done.
A fool proof path to getting there is to go through a process with your direct reports that is something like this:
· I do you watch, let them watch you perform the task first.
· I do you help, let them help you and perform parts of the task themselves.
· You do I help, let them take the reigns and you help them out where needed.
· You do I watch, let them tackle it on there own and provide feedback.
· You do, now they are off to the races and working in a manner you can trust.
Understand that you can't do it all yourself, so stop acting like it. You're not Superman or Wonder Woman. Delegate to your team, empower them, and trust them. As my Dad once said, “give someone else a turn or you wont have any friends you little 🍑”
So, my friends, embrace the power of delegation. Trust your team, set clear expectations, let go of your ego, and understand that it's okay to make some damn mistakes. So this week be a delegation ninja and watch your team shine. And remember, that’s an order straight from the Captain! Read the full article here.
