When delegation is not a good choice

When delegation is not a good choice

Delegation is not a good idea when considering:

  • Newly hired people - they need training, coaching and supervision unitl they master the work;
  • Those that are burned out - extra effort is beyond them;
  • People with bad attitude - bring the mood of the team down. And you have to check on them frequently.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

You delegate when you describe a project or task to one of your team members, give them the objective, and make sure that they have the resources they need.

IDEA

  • For new and inexperienced in the job staff -  use a directive delegation style (Tell exactly what you want them to do).
  • For staff that has experience in the job (they know what they are doing) - use the effective, management by objectives delegation method (Tell people the end result that you want and then get out of their way).
  • When the staff person is completely experienced and competent, your method of delegation in this case is simply, easy interaction.

To delegate efficiently, ensure you choose the right person for the job with the necessary skills.

  • Identify the required skillsets for the role
  • Define an hour and money budget for the task
  • Identify prospective candidates for the job.
  • Interview the candidates if necessary

When you are hiring, make a practical test simulating the task you are delegating. If you need a video editor, ask for a quick video.
