This is what your organization strives for – as ‘Time is Money’ As delegation decreases delays in achieving tasks, and it also decreases delays on those who are waiting on you (ie, your management, clients, customers, etc). As a manager, you are able to take more actions or make more decisions. Therefore, an investment in the effective delegation process needs to be seen as an investment – not only in your people – but also in the long term’s vitality & success of your organization.

This will result in appreciation of you for trusting and more confidence in themselves. This will motive them, and they will work harder, then become more dedicated to reach the goals of the organization. Delegation helps staff members to be more engaged as they feel that their managers trusted them to succeed at the delegated tasks.
