This week’s 2nd Power Word definitely improves performance, “DELEGATE!”
It’s probably fitting that DELEGATE follows this week’s first Power Word, as often it takes COURAGE to let go to begin to DELEGATE key tasks to subordinates.
Being able to DELEGATE is vital for leaders at all levels, for two reasons.
- Until direct reports develop the skills necessary to step up to higher-level work the manager/supervisor will be stuck in their position, unable to begin effectively doing the higher-level work they need to develop the skills and strategies of work at their next level in the organization.
- DELEGATION in organizations is about development and succession planning. Champion organizations are always looking to keep the pipeline of talent full and the leaders must let go to step up!
What do you have to do to be even better when you DELEGATE?
’til next time, make it a great weekend!
