Delegation is a skill that is groomed over time. And once you get the hang of it, doing it will be a breeze. As a business, you know that there are a lot of sacrifices involved—like personal savings, rest, and relaxation, among others. However, you can avoid sacrificing too much of yourself by delegating. It is a science as much as it is an art!

Learning the importance of delegation can help you avoid experiencing decision fatigue—a scenario wherein your decision-making powers are overworked and you become reactive instead of a proactive thinker.

Another thing delegation can help you with is empowering your team members and preventing them from burning out—an important aspect if you want to keep your turnover rate at bay. Empowered employees may stay longer than those who are burned out and can be useful in hitting your yearly business objectives!
