Effective Delegation

Many leaders and managers fail to master effective delegation skills, seriously blocking their career progression and hampering their ability to lead. The natural cascade of authority and challenge down through the organisation is often unnecessarily derailed by a combination of fear and a lack of trust. If you do not delegate enough your people many begin to demonstrate what psychologist Martin Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania termed “learned helplessness”, where they basically stop trying.
