Practice leaders find it hard to delegate even though it is critical to the growth and success of their business. So why aren’t we delegating if we know that it is important? Quite simply, people don’t delegate because it takes a lot of up-front effort.
While on the surface it’s easier to do it your self than explain the strategy behind the task to someone else, there are two key reasons that it’s better to delegate the task to someone else. First, by doing the work yourself, leaders are failing to make the best use of their time. Secondly, by meaningfully involving other people in the task, leaders are developing their team’s skills and abilities.
