Good delegation: a rare artform indeed

often we may hear people say that someone is a “good delegator” and some even claim it for themselves. However, it is my belief that there are occasions when this title is used when a better expression would be “they job got done in the way I would have done it and they got someone else to do it!” Call me a cynic….maybe that is what I am……but we all know that there is an element of truth in this.
Good delegation requires me to allow someone to take responsibility and complete authority in order to get the job done, with me being accountable. If not, it is unlikely to be good delegation….just my opinion of course!! 😉 (….and yes, plenty of generalisation too!!)
