The biggest obstacle I’ve ever come across when working on anything involving co-workers or employees is being able to delegate tasks. I consider myself a very aware person, every task I do I try to learn from and integrate this learning into the future. I find this delegating problem especially so if I’m starting new projects, diving into the unknown with new techniques or processes.
The biggest problem comes when I fear that delegating this task will mean the customer is no longer happy with the product they receive. What sets companies apart is how they deliver their products. I can still remember the first fly fishing rod I ever bought because they gave me a sticker with it.
Employees or co-workers who you are not comfortable delegating tasks to are a burden to the organization. Further, employees and co-workers who ignore the delicate nature of each and every task they undertake are the ones responsible for starting the ball rolling in a downward spiral of ‘just getting it done’.
Don’t just get it done, make it count and be epic.
