Leadership and the Art of Delegating

In our experience, and that of many leaders we’ve encountered, the act of delegating tasks is a double-edged sword. It’s incredibly beneficial, yet it can be exceedingly challenging to execute effectively.

Observing various leaders, we’ve noticed a clear divide: those who hesitate to delegate often become a choke point within their organizations, while those who do so willingly are often surprised by the overwhelmingly positive outcomes.

Remember, leaders, you are a valuable asset to your organization, not a fallback for every task. Your capability to manage all aspects doesn’t necessarily mean you should.

Take Kenny Jahng, the founder of Big Click Syndicate, as an example. His digital agency specializes in strategic marketing for nonprofits and religious organizations.

Jahng’s growth was stunted by his involvement in routine tasks such as scheduling and customer service follow-ups, leaving him little time for his true passions.

However, once he started delegating these operational tasks, his business transformed. Jahng’s philosophy is simple: “To scale, you must progressively relinquish control. It’s a continuous journey for me.”

Delegation is the key to business expansion. For Jahng, it shifted his focus from mere maintenance to proactive growth. This is the essence of delegation: it elevates us from mundane tasks to the pursuit of our vision.

As we’ve often said, casting a vision repeatedly is one of the most impactful actions for our teams. Such vision casting is impossible if we’re mired in everyday tasks.

Leaders must adopt delegation wholeheartedly. It’s a game changer: it makes our organizations more nimble, productive, responsive, innovative, and efficient.
