Why delegation is good for business
As a business owner, one of the toughest skills to master is the art of delegation.
While a reluctance to delegate is often simply a hangover from the early days of your business when you were likely responsible for everything from sales to marketing, finances and operations – as your business grows, delegation is an essential tool to boost productivity and allow you to scale.
Still not convinced? Here are a few reasons why delegation is good for business…
Saves you time (and money)
When you first launched your business, maybe you had the time (and motivation!) to ideate, create and execute across all facets of your company. But as you’ve grown, no doubt you’ve discovered that your time is often stretched and there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to dwell on the minutiae of each task. By delegating certain projects to your team, however, you can reclaim those precious hours so that you can begin to work on your business, rather than in it. The happy side effect of delegation is also often increased profits as you have more time on your hands to dedicate to exploring revenue-generating leads.
Encourages accountability & team development
No matter the industry, professional development is essential for team morale – as is a feeling of accountability. While delegation might not come naturally to you, your team thrive on delegation as being tasked with a project says to them that they are valued and trusted enough to execute on your behalf. There’s nothing more empowering than succeeding at work and by delegating effectively, you’re able to facilitate this growth within your team. With Proply, for example, you’re able to add unlimited(!) Assistants to your team, without any additional cost – meaning that you can delegate the task of developing your proposals. All you need to do from there is sign them off and send. Simple.
When tasks are delegated to those with skills more closely aligned to the task at hand, efficiencies are improved instantly. Instead of spending countless hours trying to become a Jack of all trades, entrust your team and their specialised skill sets to get the job done. By doing so, you open yourself up to more time planning and strategising – subsequently supporting the growth of your business and boosting revenue.
