While I've covered questions to consider as you go about delegating (TEams365 #393), resources to support you around delegation (Teams 365 #392) today I wanted to focus on the question:
What is the cost if you try to do it all?
What is the cost to you? Your team members?
Being able to discern key priorities is essential to the team leader role, and if we get too caught up in the "doing" of the work, rather than support of the team, identification of strategic issues, or troubleshooting. Besides navigating conflict, I would put delegation up on the top three list of things most team leaders I work with want support around.
This week, do yourself and your team a favor by not only thinking about the cost of delegation, but also considering what you want to delegate and to who. For more tips around that, visit another one of my past posts (#Teams365 #90)
Have a great start to your week!
