The Art of Delegating and How to Be Better at It

March 26th, 2020

Every strong manager must learn to delegate because even the most proficient leader can’t do everything alone. Delegating work is essential to creating a healthy and productive office culture. 

Unfortunately, many managers feel more in control when they try to shoulder as much work as possible. Not only can that backfire and lead to burnout, but it can show your employees that you don’t have confidence in their abilities. This can negatively impact the office environment and lead to low morale. Plus, all of this can even lead to employee turnover. 

Become a Better Delegator and Boss

To build a strong office that is confident, works as a team, and is productive, it’s essential to delegate regularly and confidently.

Plan How You Delegate

When you sit down to plan a project or strategize, one thing you must include in your preparation is how you will delegate tasks. This way, you can consider who can handle different functions of a big project without getting too far along and missing opportunities to delegate. 

Give Employees a Chance to Work on Their Skills

As you decide how and when to delegate to your employees, consider giving them tasks that can help them become a stronger professional. While many times you will delegate work that fits within an employee’s strengths, there will also be times when you can give an employee a chance to improve their skills.

Feel More Trusted & More Engaged

Over time, as you continue to delegate to your team, you will build trust with your employees. They’ll be more motivated to perform to their highest potential as they see that you are confident in their abilities. All of these positive outcomes help foster a healthy and engaged work environment.

Delegating isn’t always easy, but understanding some of the benefits of this essential leadership skill can help lead your team to greater morale, productivity, and success.

Help Your Employees Boost Productivity

January 24th, 2020

With all of the technological developments of how to tell time and track how we spend our time, we still have only 24 hours in a day. It comes as no surprise, then, that productivity is a prized attribute in the business world. As a manager, one of your biggest concerns is how to boost productivity because, at the end of the day, time is money and money is time. 

Unfortunately, some of the ways that workers try to boost productivity are misguided. These mistakes in productivity practices could be bad habits or misconceptions, but it’s time to make 2020 a year of higher productivity and better job performance.

Productivity Tips to Help Your Employees

These tips are proven to improve performance in the workplace.

Encourage Better Breaks

Sometimes when employees face a fast-approaching deadline, they decide to “power through” by skipping lunch breaks, coffee breaks, or even cutting time with family in the evenings. Unfortunately, while this may seem to be the best way to meet a deadline, it’s counterproductive and damaging to the quality of their work. 

Instead, encourage power breaks. These breaks can include a walk outside to recharge. Stepping away from their work will allow your employees to get a natural burst of energy. Coming back to work, your employees can approach their work with a fresh perspective.

Fight Back Against Procrastination

Procrastination can be a temptation for many. Some workers are perfectionists, so instead of doing good work on time or early, they get stuck trying to be perfect and risk not finishing at all. Others are intimidated by something challenging and may delay their work out of fear. Still, others may procrastinate out of not being challenged enough, and they become unmotivated. Whatever the reason, procrastination is the opposite of productivity.

To fight back the urge to procrastinate on a particular project, teach your employees how to schedule their days effectively. Difficult and challenging work should be done first thing in the morning. Getting this work right away will make them feel even more productive, which can boost their productivity all day long.

Foster Collaboration

A lot of professionals feel like they can do it all on their own. But actually, some of the best work is done in duos or teams. This dynamic tends to make work more enjoyable and therefore turns up productivity. Collaboration also allows for more creative thinking and problem-solving, which can be very useful when tackling something new.
