Why you should delegate duties

One technique you can use to prioritize your time is to identify the tasks that you don’t actually need to perform yourself. Many of us are guilty of trying to do everything on our own. It may be because we feel that it would be faster just to do it ourselves than to try to explain how to do it to someone else. Or maybe we are concerned that no one else will do as good a job as we would. However, none of us has endless time and endless energy. If we can delegate tasks to other people, why not do it?

There are a number of benefits to you, to the person that you delegate your tasks to, and to the organization as a whole when you learn how to properly delegate.
The benefits :
For you For the other person For the organization
Reduced stress
The opportunity to learn something new
Having more than one person who knows how to perform the given task
Additional time to dedicate to tasks that you truly need to work on yourself
The chance to feel useful and part of the team
Adding a new perspective to a situation
Practicing the skill of effective delegation
The chance to show you what they can do and earn accolades for that achievement
Having employees that are less stressed due to sharing their work duties
