We all want to be successful in our careers by doing things that aligns to our passion and interests, don't we?. Some work for personal reasons and some of us work for that feel-good sense of achievement. In an ideal world, everything will be in-place, and we are able to do what we want quickly and be happy. Unfortunately, in the real world things work differently. More often than others, to achieve our targets we need to work as a team, where each person brings a unique set of skills to hit the target.
Whilst working on our targets and tasks, we are so engraved that we do not pay attention towards others. This especially happens when senior staff do all the interesting stuff and leave the crumbs to others. They then force these crumbs onto junior members and take credit as being part of the leadership team. We all are aware that if you hold the sand too tight, it will slip through. Time and again we see staff not being empowered to complete their work in the name of "process", leave very soon. Reaps and reaps of "process" documents are created that no one reads or follow and has no value add. These "processes" A.K.A "burdens" leads to a feeling of entrapment.
Entrapment creeps in where one or more person in the team are not given equal opportunities to do challenging work.
This is because they are junior or do not have previous experience. Well unless you give them these opportunities where will
they get the experience from? They will find it somewhere else within or outside the organization.
So if you want to succeed and hit your targets, then start delegating responsibilities to others. We all know how hard
it is to let go of things we care about, but at the end you will be happy with the result. Remember there is
You can start delegation by .....
Don't use humans as stepping stone for your own career, if they move you will fall and fail. Try to delegate and see the team grow with you. Else, they will grow without you somewhere else. Be a leader, lead by example and lead by delegating to succeed.
