How to Properly Delegate Tasks to Your Team

For the past several years, Chris Jamroz has led STG Holdings, LLC, as CEO. Based in New Jersey, this company maintains independent container freight station facilities for container freight transported by sea and air. Prior to this, Chris Jamroz held multiple other leadership positions and successfully oversaw the work of several thousand employees.

Good delegation is an important skill for managers and other leaders. Several considerations related to proper delegation include:

Providing training. Ideally, you want to delegate tasks to people who can already perform them. But you cannot assume someone has the knowledge to complete a task you give them. Instead, make sure training and resources are available to people when you assign them a new task. This not only expands their skill range, but it also betters the chance that tasks will be finished in a timely and accurate manner.

Letting go. One of the reasons leaders decide not to delegate is because they struggle with removing themselves from the work. However, letting go of certain tasks can help you get more done. Start by delegating small tasks and work your way up from there. Over time, you will learn that you can trust your team and you will discover the skills your co-workers have. At the same time, make sure you don’t over-delegate and assign tasks to others that you should be doing yourself.

Using feedback. Both you and your workers should provide feedback about the delegation process. For you, make sure you thank your workers when they do a good job on a task. If they fall short, give them constructive criticism. At the same time, encourage your workers to share their thoughts about your delegating abilities and whether they felt everyone got the right tasks and had the resources they needed.
