Effective Delegation

Effective delegation is an essential skill to learn if you want to be an effective manager. After all the best managers don't strive to be super heroes.

Instead they are exceptional at picking good people to do what they need to have done, and then letting them get on with it.

However delegating effectively can be difficult. It means identifying the right task to delegate, overcoming barriers to delegation and taking the time to delegate properly so that everyone knows what they are expected to do and by when.
