While delegating may seem simple on paper, the situation is complex in practice. The managers may feel as if they have less control and are wasting energy by adapting to other ways of working that delivers results that are not always up to their expectations.
However, delegating is essential for the manager to maintain the necessary distance from their role, and it is an indispensable action to guarantee the team's development. Delegating stimulates the employee's autonomy, and it is a key factor in motivation. Laying the foundations for effective delegation means defining why we delegate and how to do it, in order to build solid agreements and gain efficiency.
