Let it Go

Learning to delegate is one of the most difficult initial steps in becoming an effective leader. I, too, have found it difficult at times to let go of things that I thought I could do myself, better than anyone else.  Over time, I have learned that I have to let go in order to grow both personally and as an organization.
If you are a leader, you probably believe you know what needs to be done and the best way to do it.  However, at some point in the leadership journey, we have to come to grips with the reality that we cannot do it all by ourselves.  At this point, we have a critical choice to make.  Either delegate the task and become a more effective leader, or hold on to the task and possibly restrict the growth of our associates, our company and ourselves.
The key to success as a leader is finding the proper mix of delegation and accountability.  Here is what I’ve found to be a winning formula for leading a high impact team: [1] hire well, [2] on-board and teach job specifics well, [3] provide the proper tools and equipment, and [4] inspect what you expect for best results.
All effective leaders find satisfaction in helping people grow; now we need to learn to let it go.
