Delegation Flow Chart

During decades of “management”, I couldn’t begin to count the number of times I’ve heard that phrase “it’s easier to do it myself.”

Although sometimes that may be true, in the long run, doing everything yourself is no formula for successful productivity.

The flow chart nicely depicts the proper delegation process for a strong leader:

  1. Be able to perform any task that you are responsible for supervising
  2. Be able to demonstrate how to do it properly
  3. Be able to teach someone how to do it as you work together
  4. Be able to monitor their execution with constructive feedback
  5. Be able to praise your protégé for their accomplishment

Great leaders influence their team toward achievement through effective delegation.

One such person was Dwight Eisenhower who stated that “Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because they want to do it.” Genius!!!
