Press Release   •   Sep 28, 2010 13:47 EDT

Your leadership style is situational. Your leadership style must be based on the task, the team or individual’s capabilities and knowledge, the time and tools available and the results desired. By the effective delegation, you convey to your employees that you have confidence in their ability to complete a job or project.

Tips for Effective Delegation:

  • Whenever you are dealing with the delegating work, give the person a whole task to do. If you are not in a position to give the employee a whole task, make sure they understand the overall purpose of the project or task. If possible, colligate them to the group that is managing or planning the work. The team members contribute most effectively only when they are aware of the whole project
  • Make sure the team members understands exactly what you want them to do. Ask questions, Monitoring the performance or have the employee give you feedback to make sure your instructions were understood.
  • If you have a picture of a successful outcome or output will look like, share your picture with the team members. You want to make the person right.
  • Know the key points of the project and dates when you need feedback about progress. This is the crucial way that provides you with the feedback you need without causing you to micromanage your direct report or team. You have to make sure that the delegated task or the project is on track.
  • Identify the outcome you will use to determine that the project was successfully completed. This will help you to make performance development planning as highly measurable and less subjective, too.
  • Plan in advance, how you will thank and reward the team members for their successful completion of the task or project you delegated.

Successful delegation of authority as a leadership style requires time and energy, but it’s worth the time and energy to help employee involvement and employee empowerment succeed as a leadership style.
