Trusting my staff will carry out the task in a reasonable time frame.

I have had poor support staff in the past, so I would end up redoing the delegated items anyway. I need to really work on my delegating skills because of this, even though my support staff now is wonderful.

I have a hard time with delegating for two main reasons. One, I don’t like to burden other people. By giving them a task it is taking them off what they are working on and working on my project. Two, I’m a bit of a perfectionist. So with this and problem one, I find it easier to just do it myself because then it’ll be done the way I want it done. So a little bit of trying to be considered at and a lot of control issues hahaha

Delegation is challenging for me, mostly because I worry how people view my leadership, so instead of micromanaging I overcompensate and let team members work too freely. This usually results in unfinished work, and a lower quality product. There is a balance between “hands off” and “micro managing” that I have not yet been able to achieve. This video definitely helps me toward that goal.

My problem is that I want to micro manage so that the task is done the way I would have done it. When I step back others teach me new approaches that I might not have considered.
