Insights: Delegating - How efficient leaders empower employees

#Leadership #Management Development #ExecutiveDevelopment #TimeManagement

We take a look at the Hershey-Blanchard Leadership Model of delegating and how you can use it to develop your employees.


Delegating is the ultimate goal in situational leadership: an employee who feels fully empowered and competent enough to take the ball and run with it, with minimal supervision. The employee is highly competent, highly committed, motivated, and empowered. The leader can now delegate tasks to the employee and observe with minimal follow up, knowing that acceptable or even excellent results will be achieved. There is a low focus on tasks and a low focus on relationships. There is no need to compliment the follower on every task, although continued praise for outstanding performance must be given as appropriate. This is a very follower-driven stage.
