Myth #3: Training

Ready to crack the code on another workplace myth? Last time we talked about the benefits of team meetings. Today, we’re talking about the importance of training your team members.

Myth #3. It will take longer to train them than it will for me to do it myself.

Learning to delegate tasks is a huge exercise in trust, and it is rarely easy to do. When leaders avoid delegating tasks, they often claim it would take longer to train someone else to do the same task. This mentality will only lead to frustration and burnout in the long run, though.

While training does take time, it is essential for others to learn the skills needed to support their team. If a leader consistently handles tasks alone, they deprive others of learning opportunities. Training empowers your team to assume responsibility and grow as integral team members. You could essentially stunt your employees’ growth and inadvertently tell them that you have doubt in their capabilities. Furthermore, you are assigning yourself tasks that you simply don’t have the time or energy to accomplish. Training your team members will take time, but the benefits far outweigh the costs.

That’s a wrap!
