Learning to delegate

As a small business owner, one of the toughest things can be to let someone else take over some of your responsibilities. However, if you can not learn to delegate then chances are that your business will grind to a standstill.

The trick is not just learning to hand over control to someone else, but being smart about the way that you do it. You should think carefully about which responsibilities are the most strategic for delegation. It should be an area of the business that is clearly defined, so that you can draw up the new lines of responsibility clearly.

You also need to be cautious in who you ask to take on extra responsibility in the business. Obviously it should be a staff member that is a high performer, but there are other things that you need to take into consideration.

If the task that you are delegating will take some time to become competent in, then you should consider how long the employee will remain with the company. Another point for consideration is whether or not it is appropriate for you to delegate this task without increasing the employee’s remuneration or changing their job title.
