Of course you cannot do everything that’s on your plate. Need to delegate effectively in order to achieve your goals. And practice, however, it’s not that easy. When asking employees that have to do tasks that have been delegated to them, you often hear the following criticisms:
- Now that my boss has delegated this task to me, he’s constantly behind my back asking questions about how am I getting on and so forth. Why did (s)he delegate this task to meet then in the first place?
- First (s)he gives me that task, then (s)he leaves me alone, shuts the door and whenever I would have any questions I could never get any answer. I’m stuck and I don’t know how to proceed with this. This is frustrating.
- Why are we doing this at all? We have done this for years and it hasn’t got the company anywhere. This is a waste of time and money. But whatever, the boss is requiring it and I’m doing it.
