If you want to do a few small things right, do them yourself. If you want to do great things and make a big impact, learn to delegate. – John Maxwell
Thanks for listening to the Always Forward Leadership Podcast! This week, we’re sharing on the art of delegation and why it can be so difficult to do. While it may be counter-intuitive for high achieving leaders to share the responsibility, it is necessary not only to grow your own leadership, but to grow the leadership of those around you.
Today, we talk about the dangers of not delegating and try to convince you of the many benefits of learning to delegate well. We’re also breaking down the right way to delegate that lifts everyone up; it’s not about simply dumping the grunt work on others.
The bottom line is this: if you want to maximize the impact of your leadership, your team or your organization, you have to delegate. Leadership is not about doing the work solo.
Question: What can you delegate this week that will not only lift the load, but help grow and develop the leaders on your team?
