STUDENT:
Unfortunately, some managers are like that. They see management as a way of just
telling people what to do and to have other people do things so they don't have to
and just take the credit for it. That is not what management is all about. Managers
need to know how and when to delegate tasks.
PARTICIPATION:
I agree when you stated that managers need to know how and when to delegate assignments.
About a month ago, one of my coworker delegated to one of his supervisees the assignment of
recording payments made by tenants for the buildings he supervises. Further, he delegated to the
employee the assignment of giving notices to all the tenants who had outstanding balances. A
few days ago, the owner contacted my coworker regarding a tenant who has not paid the rent for
the past three months; the owner asked why the tenant had not been evicted yet. My coworker
explained to the owner that several days ago he had already instructed the property manager to
contact the attorney and initiate the eviction process. My coworker could not explain to the
owner what had caused the eviction process to be delayed. After a brief research, my coworker
found out that his supervisee was receiving calls from the tenants (late payers); more
specifically, they were requesting extensions for their payments and the supervisee had granted
them based on the fact that he thought he was empowered to take management decisions. As a
result of my coworker’s ineffective delegation, our company ended up increasing their losses as
the eviction process was delayed.
STUDENT:
When you delegate in business there is no such thing as a single-handed
success. When you include and acknowledge all those who are on your team,
you lift yourself, your teammates and everyone around you to greater heights.
Daniel Farrow
PARTICIPATION:
I agree with you when you stated that delegation is related to the concept of team work. Indeed,
the employee who receives the decisions-making authority must complete the tasks as instructed
while the delegator must provide all the resources and support to ensure that the employee will
be successful. I believe that delegation should benefit everyone not only the manager; more
specifically, delegation should benefit the employee, the manager, and the organization.

However, managers who believe in single-handed success are those that likely believe that they
can do a better job than anyone else; they are reluctant to delegate tasks to others.
