This month Dave is primarily discussing delegation.
Many managers and leaders struggle with delegation. There are a number of reasons for this:
• Nobody can do it as well as I can do it.
• By the time I show somebody how to do it, I could have just done it myself.
• I enjoy doing this - why would I want to give it to someone else?
• Everybody is really busy, so they don’t have time for this.
Eli Broad is the only person to build two Fortune 500 companies in different industries (KB Home and Sun America). As of April 2015, Forbes ranked Broad as the 185th wealthiest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $7.1 billion. He’s also the namesake of MSU’s College of Business. He had this to say about delegation: "the inability to delegate is one of the biggest problems I see with managers at all levels."
So, the first hurdle is to recognize the benefits of effective delegation. The second is to then learn how to delegate effectively. With practice, you can become much more effective at delegation, and we’ll talk about what the impact of that skill is for you as a leader, and for your organization.
Listen to Jeffrey and Dave discuss delegation and how and why this skill is essential for leaders at all levels of your organization.
