One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading
When you become a people manager, you must shift your focus to areas that are vital to the company and become less involved in the daily tasks.
That shift can bring about concerns: “What will happen if I let go and delegate that responsibility? Will I be seen as less vital if I delegate certain tasks? No one can do it as good as me.”
It’s a leader’s primary responsibility to deliver great results through others. Thus, your performance depends on your ability to focus on the success of your people. You need to keep your employees engaged, empowered and let them develop their skills.
So, when you or one of your people become people managers, the most important skill to hone is delegation.
