Delegation Of Tasks As An Important Part Of Efficiency by incomeboostng: 3:16am On Feb 13, 2021
If you are in a position where you have assistants or designated people
under your supervision, you need to learn to delegate. If you are not in
such a position yet, you still need to know – since you’re working on
developing your potential you very likely will be some day.

Delegating work is difficult for many people. Some find it hard to ask
others to do things for them – others find it hard not to demand that
others do tasks. Delegating is an art.

First, you need to realize that the people under your supervision are
people. Seldom, if ever, should you demand – that takes away self respect.
In order to achieve a happy and co-operative crew, you need to help them
build self-respect and self-confidence. A happy and co-operative crew is
an asset to you. Demands do not promote self-respect and co-operation.
Oh, it’s probably effective to demand in the short run – but in the long
run you will be better off to gain co-operation without demanding.

People who are asked to do a task, are given explanations and clear
instructions, and are praised for a job well done will grow in self-respect.
They will also respect you as a good supervisor. If you hesitate to ask
for their assistance, your crew will feel that you do not trust them or
have faith in their abilities. This affects their self-respect and, as a
reaction, will affect their respect for you, as well.

When you delegate work, don’t delegate just the “junk” tasks. Your crew
needs to be given some important tasks to do as well as unimportant ones.
The important task gives them a sense of the respect you have for them and
the faith you have in their abilities. It’s a good idea to save some
“junk” tasks for yourself. Perhaps the most respected and effective boss
is the one about whom the crew says, “She never gives us anything to do
that she wouldn’t do herself.” Why? Because, by her actions the boss is
saying that, though her position is above theirs, she is still just “plain

Delegation of tasks is important because you can gain in effectiveness and
get more done if you properly supervise a crew. Don’t feel embarrassed or
hesitant about delegating work. If it helps you to shine, it helps your
crew shine, too. A well-run, effective department is a credit to the whole
team. With proper delegating, you can help your crew achieve their
potential as well as achieving your own.
