How to be a Delegator and Not a Doer

delegateWhen you envisioned building a successful business, chances are, you did not envision doing it alone.  Let’s face it, there is only one of you and only so many hours in a day.  Work-life balance is hard enough as a small business owner, let others help and learn from you.  While most business owners understand the importance of delegation, they still can’t do it.  Delegation is not a bad word and by no means a sign on weakness, it is an opportunity for others to learn and grow form your experiences.  So don’t hesitate… DELEGATE!

1.  Innovation Takes Time

Don’t let operational tasks and busy work keep you from the next bright idea that will help you grow your business.  Delegation is necessary to allow you time to come up with that next big idea that will make your small business dreams come true.

2.  Loose Control

Chances are you are a Type A personality, most small business owners are.  This can make it difficult to give up control.  Too much control is not only unhealthy, but it can also lead to resentful employees. It will cause undue stress on you as well as your staff. What’s the point of growing your business if you’re too stressed to enjoy it?  Let others help you and your success will be unlimited.
