As an entrepreneur, I understand the complexities involved with delegation. In order to grow a successful business, it’s important to let go of some perfectionism and delegate certain tasks so you can focus on your strengths. However, then there is the cost issue associated with delegation, and the question of what exactly to delegate in the first place. It’s a tricky balancing act that can be hard to master. This guide for entrepreneurs can help. It explains why, how and what to delegate in your small business.
Learning how to delegate is a skill that has to be developed just like any other entrepreneurial skill. Before entrepreneurs get to the level where they need to delegate, they have probably already put their hearts and souls into the business they’ve given birth to. Sometimes it can be hard to give up control of any tasks. You want everything to run smoothly, and it’s easy to get caught up in the mental trap that you have to handle everything yourself. I’ve learned that lesson the hard way more than once.
With proper delegation, you’ll be able to preserve your own energy to do what you do best, and that will make you more money, optimize your time, and allow your business to grow at a fast pace. This guide for entrepreneurs, which comes in the form of an infographic, is called The Entrepreneurs Guide To Delegation (by easywk).
It suggests a very easy ‘rule of thumb’ for you to use to know whether or not to delegate something. Just ask yourself one question…”Does this task require my expertise, talent or personal touch?” If the answer to that question is no, it’s something that can be delegated. I hope this guide for entrepreneurs is helpful for anyone who, like me, has struggled with this throughout the years. Enjoy!
