Leaders, do you monitor your employees’ work too closely?
There’s a word for that. It’s called micromanaging. It makes your job harder than it has to be. If only you could learn to delegate more tasks, you would feel less overwhelmed and your employees would feel more valued.
- By giving over responsibility for specific tasks to your team, you are showing your confidence in their ability to deliver and they will feel engaged in the process and that they own the project.
- If you do not oversee their every move, they will feel more confident, trusted and likely to update you on progress on their own…as well as check in with you if they have any questions.
- The employee becomes accountable for a job well or poorly done and know that they now have a chance to demonstrate their abilities.
