Disastrous at Delegating? 4 Tips to Become a Pro!

Marshall Goldsmith

My good friend and mentor, Dr. Paul Hersey, showed me why more delegation is not necessarily better delegation. Leaders often fall into the trap that they “need to delegate” more. For some reason, they’ve been led to believe that delegation is always a good thing. It’s not! If you delegate to someone who isn’t ready for the task or to someone who doesn’t want the responsibility, you will have a disaster on your hands. So, how can you do a better job of delegating?

5 Ways to Become a Better Leader!

Marshall Goldsmith

My good friend and mentor, Dr. Paul Hersey, defined leadership as “working with and through others to achieve objectives.” It’s an age-old question: Are we influenced more by nature or nurture? Applied to leadership, the question becomes: Are great leaders born or made? It’s one of the most frequently asked questions in leadership development. Let’s start with the definition of “leader.”

The Bliss and Challenge of the R2 Diagnosis

The Center For Leadership Studies

1 Hersey P, Blanchard KH, Johnson DE. You won the job over dozens, if not hundreds of applicants! Or you were promoted over a handful of strong colleagues! Your resume speaks for itself regarding your previous experience, accomplishments and acclaim! You are eager, engaged and exuberant as you consider the next step in your professional journey ….

Should Leaders be Consistent or Flexible?

The Center For Leadership Studies

For example: Leadership is an art as opposed to a science. Leadership is something you do with people, not to people.

One Thing Super Successful People Don’t Do!

Marshall Goldsmith

One of my greatest heroes, Dr. Paul Hersey, co-creator of Situational Leadership™, was a wonderful mentor to me. Super successful people do not “coast” on their success. Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of very successful people, and I’ve found they have one thing in common. They always keep challenging themselves. They always keep trying to be better. I have a tendency to want to coast. If I’m good at something, my default is to keep doing it!

How Being Too Good Holds You Back!

Marshall Goldsmith

It was lucrative, and I needed my mentor Dr. Paul Hersey to point out the downside or I never would have grown. When it comes to changing our behavior, there are two options that people usually try.

Eliminating is our most liberating, therapeutic action – but we make it reluctantly.

One Quick Exercise for Planning Your Life

Marshall Goldsmith

In doing this exercise myself, I found that all of my heroes are generous teachers, like Buddha, Frances Hesselbein (former Girl Scout CEO), Alan Mulally (former Ford CEO), Peter Drucker (Father of Modern Management), and Paul Hersey (Co-creator of Situational Leadership®).

I believe that success is defined by each individual differently – because we have different values.

How Can I Delegate More Effectively?

Marshall Goldsmith

My good friend and mentor Paul Hersey showed me why more delegation was not necessarily better delegation. My first suggestion in trying to improve delegation skills is for you to always remember: "Delegate more effectively -- don't just delegate more frequently." If we delegate an assignment to a person who lacks the motivation and ability to do the job, we do a disservice to both the person and our organization. We need to delegate only to people who are ready to handle the challenge.
