Rise Above Your Competition

Letting go...

As your company grows there will be more demands on your time. What can happen is there is less time to think through  problems properly. Or worse, not deal with issues at all. The manager tends to be in a Reactive Management mode where they are continually firefighting issues.

At this point it is likely time to delegate some responsibilties. How well this transition happens depends largely on how your workforce is positioned to take on responsibilities.

  • Try and identify (or hire) candidates that can take on decision making responsibilities.
  • Provide clear guidelines about where their responsibilities lie and when to escalate.
  • Avoid the temptation to micromange.

Remember that employees will generally meet your expectations.

Provide the appropriate authority and responsibility and ensure other coworkers are informed.
