Hire people who are better than you are……….

In the pass and currently I have worked with clients who have a real issue with delegating. They then wonder why their staff do not perform and are not creative/practical thinkers. Which reminds me of this quote ‘Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it. Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine.’ David Ogilvy-Scottish born British Military intelligence officer and later top advertising executive 1911-1999. Clarity around individual roles and responsibilities is also key. Within my accredited level 4 Leadership and Management course the managers complete this  task. How is leadership distributed in your setting:

  • Identify different key roles and responsibilities.
  • Explain how these are shared effectively amongst the team?

 Delegate a task to a member of your team.

  • Describe the process and implement it.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your decision to do this.

So, if you are micro-managing your staff and do not delegate, try this task and let me know how you get on?
