Delegation skills are very useful when it comes to the success of a company and some of the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make are often due to a lack of delegation. Timothy Skyes, a contributor at Entrepreneur.com, says that “doing everything yourself will only cause you to burn out or draw focus away from the tasks that actually need your expertise and attention.” This does not mean letting somebody do the work you don’t want to do yourself, it means maximising time and resources to improve productivity and reduce costs and pressure.
To be able to delegate effectively, a good entrepreneur must be able to communicate what it is they want their team to achieve. Follow ups and identifying difficulties will then set a part those who can manage delegated tasks. This will also give your team the opportunity to improve and learn new skills.
