Barriers to Success
As a leader there are many ways to encourage success in others, but there are often times when there are barriers to success.
These could include
- unachievable targets
- Not providing the full resources for the task
- Providing an “all responsibility and no authority” approach to delegation
- Tacking back control at the first sign of success
- A lack of training
What ever barriers there are need to have the same approach as occupational health and safety procedures, that is…
- Eliminate the problem
- Isolate the problem
- Minimise the problem
It is important to develop ways to ensure that the people given tasks to do, have a chance to succeed. As a delegating leader it is your sole purpose to see people achieve the tasks allocated to them, their failure is your responsibility.
