Host: Sarah Bettman, Talent Development Manager, heading Diversity and Inclusion efforts at Constellation Brands.
Have you heard any of these phrases: “it would take three people to replace you” or “I can’t imagine how we could do this without you” or “you’re indispensable”? If so, you could be at risk of being blocked in your career.
For many women, those phrases feel like compliments; we keep our head down, we work hard, we take on more, and we wait to get tapped for that next promotion and these phrases feel like acknowledgement of our good work. Unfortunately, once you become indispensable you’ve made it hard for your manager or team to help you move on an achieve your highest potential.
- What it means to be indispensable and the potential consequences
- The impact on us when we work this way
- Actions to keep our career on track
MUST HAVES FOR DELEGATION
We all get that delegation is an essential leadership skill, but we still don’t do it. Why? It’s hard. It requires us to change and do things differently and therefore we do it. There are many reasons, we don’t have enough time, your team isn’t skilled enough, it’ll just be faster if I do it, but it’s impossible to have enough time to lead when we’re busy doing all of the work. With a bit of preparation and planning, delegation can be a lot easier. This 4-step approach will give you the tools necessary to improve your ability to delegate:
- A framework to determine what to delegate
- An understanding of who to delegate to
- How to set up the delegation relationship
- How to let go
