Delegation as a Lifeline for Leaders
September 7, 2021
One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.
-Author, Gretchen Rubin
Debra Sullivan, in Leading Early Childhood Organizationswrites about how very beneficial it can be for a leader to learn to delegate effectively. She explains:

“Spreading leadership broad and deep results in a more inclusive process that represents everyone and provides the leader with the opportunity to:
  • not worry,
  • not have to be in charge of everything,
  • not have to work alone,
  • begin to recognize, appreciate, support, and make use of the leadership potential of those who surround us (very important)."

Jesse Sostrin, in a Harvard Business Review article, “To Be a Great Leader, You Have to Learn How to Delegate Well” has this to say about delegation: “One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading…You need to be more essential and less involved.”
