Remember it is ‘Delegate’ and not merely ‘Task’!admin
However, delegation is the process of empowering. Letting the team member know the big picture and how he would be contributing to that by accomplishing the piece that he has been delegated. It involves making the tools and resources available and letting him understand the deliverables, timelines and the constraints. Here onwards, the team member takes over and is expected to deliver. He would come back to you on his own if he needed some help or clarification.
In contrast to the ‘tasking’ leader, the ‘delegating’ leader focuses on the growth areas for his team member. Maybe the team member is venturing into areas new for him, being groomed to take over some of your responsibilities to free you for even greater ones. All in all, it should be more exciting for him and more rewarding for you if you could move from just delegating to genuine delegating.
