Developing Your Team

Are you developing the skills of your team? You can't afford to have associates who have become complacent.

Today, try this: What is one thing on your list of action items that someone on your team could do? I realize you do it best, but what could someone else do with a little training?

Now, decide who on your team; it would be a step up for them to do this task that you usually do. Meet with them and explain what you are delegating,
why it is important to the enterprise, and express your confidence in their
ability to do it.

Step back and let them do it - even if they stumble at first. Resist the temptation to tell them how; simply communicate the results you expect. Show your appreciation when they "Get it done!"

Everyday, remove one more task from your action items. You will be building a competent and capable team, and creating time for you to do more "leading" than "doing".
Be encouraged,
