Running a business or department can often a person stretch to the limit. To be effective in doing what you do best, it is imperative to look at the tasks you can delegate or outsource. Delegate This is an interesting word. For some people this means letting go completely of their responsibilities and get someone else to do the job. Now that is all very well if you train them about the way he has been handling those tasks. Show them how it was done first.
For many entrepreneurs and managers, the media delegation completely abdicate responsibility for a particular task to another without showing how. They expect the person to know? Immediately. Well, forget it. No wonder we hear often: “I tried to delegate that task, but nobody was as good as I do!” Or “I could not find the right person who was able to assume these responsibilities.” That’s an interesting comment. Often people are given responsibilities for which they have not had training and then expected to know how to perform these functions.
A great example of this is when a person is promoted to manager / team leader and he / she is automatically expected to know how to manage themselves and their people. Coming from outside What do you think the new kid on the block next to take the reins in one position, which has already been evacuated. They are expected to run the department or the company as if it has been working in the business over the past three years!

If you need a new assistant will put an ad in the newspaper, spend hours interviewing people or have a recruiting firm to do all the field work and send the three main candidates? Why waste your valuable time on tasks that will do exactly that?
