Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski
Effective Delegation vs. Dumping or
A critical part of good leadership is proper delegation. Many
managers still micromanage or dump. By dumping I mean they tell an
employee what to do without giving clear instructions or
monitoring progress. Then managers are
when the employee did not accomplish the intended
result. Micro-managers are the opposite. They stifle morale and creativity when they are constantly on top of their employees
about all the details.
As a perfectionist, I struggle with
being a micro-manager. But I must recognize this and allow others
creativity and to learn from their mistakes. Often it is more
effective for an employee to see why they failed to achieve a
desired result than to be told about it. Then they are more open
to understanding your instructions and are more respectful.
Proper delegation is giving clear
instructions up front, monitoring progress and inspecting the
result before it's too late.
Developing talent and character qualities in employees so they can
handle the responsibilities you give them is a separate topic.
