Hard working leaders all face a challenge that comes with more responsibilities as they are promoted/elevated.
Whether it is a an assistant coach becoming a head coach, an employee becoming a manager, a director becoming a vice president, and a vice president becoming president. They all have to deal with how to DELEGATE to others.
The challenges are many.
- For some leaders it is trusting that others will work as hard as they do
- For some it is letting go of tasks because they falsely believe others are not as competent as they are.
- The guilt of asking others to do what they do best
- Not clearly defining the tasks that need to be completed
When leaders are promoted they sometimes fail to realize that what they need to do is spend time developing their team. They can do this by teaching skills and then delegating responsibilites. They also need to spend more time in planning and thinking. Planning is hard work and for some newly promoted leaders this may be a responsibility they have not done much of.
A promotion also means you have to prioritize your time to focus on the most important issues in the organization. This means DELEGATE to others.
Without it two things usually happen-burnout or the team does not grow.
