How to Delegate Vital Business Tasks

November 8, 2013
Running a business requires skill, patience, and attention to detail. The irony about a business is that if you’re good at your job the business starts to grow and it becomes impossible to keep doing your job the same way you have been doing it with so much success. You have to be willing to delegate tasks to employees. Yet it is not easy to trust others with tasks you have been in charge of for so long. Many of the tasks you must eventually delegate are crucial to your business’ success. These include hiring new employees, ordering products at the right time, managing inventory, assisting customers, and many others. In the following video, Fishbowl CEO David K. Williams gives helpful tips on overcoming fear and learning to trust your employees with responsibilities that can make or break your company: Last week’s video was about how leaders work better in pairs and the one before that mentioned simple ways to be respectful at the office. Stay tuned for next week’s video on how to help people fail up. Williams’ book, The 7 Non-Negotiables of Winning: Tying Soft Traits to Hard Results, is available for purchase through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
