Rich’s Rule of Engagement # 6 – Delegate!

April 21, 2015

Rich's Rules TitlecardAchieve THROUGH Others – Delegate!

One of the biggest steps you can take as a leader is moving from doing the work yourself, to achieving results through others.  Perhaps you excelled at a particular skill, talent or ability, but higher powers in your organization saw you as a candidate for promotion to management.

Like most who are promoted into a management or supervisory role, you may have arrived in the new position with no formal training in management and no idea how to make the shift from doing things yourself to getting others to do them for you.  And, what’s worse, giving up your comfort zone – something at which you excel – for something you have not yet mastered.  This can be awkward or unnerving.   But that may be the next, and one of the most important, steps on your leadership journey.  Don’t turn back!

For this reason Delegate is Rich’s Rule of Engagement # 6.
