Infographic: How to be better at delegating

As a leader, you can’t handle every task, so it’s important to empower your team to do crucial work without you. Here are some tips to help you manage this workplace interaction.

According to an infographic from Headway Capital, fewer than 15% of managers think they delegate enough.

For managers looking to lead their teams to brighter futures and bigger results, that’s a problem.

The research suggests that most business owners believe their organization would grow 20% if they delegated 10% of their workload.  CEOs who delegate see 33% greater revenues than those who do it all themselves.

So, what’s holding you back?

The infographic identifies seven tips to help you delegate.

They include:

  • Seek accountability. Ask your direct reports to hold you accountable for delegating your work.
  • Train your staff. You can’t offload your work if you don’t have a competent team.
  • Identify “self-enhancement bias.” The work isn’t always more valuable just because you participated.
