Delegation of authority is one of the key things that leaders need to be able to do, so that they can focus on the things that have the highest priority. Delegation of authority is one of the recommended strategies for all leaders.

There are a few problems related to delegation of authority, however. The biggest problem is that it is possible that the person you are delegating to does not have the capability or the vision to execute the tasks they are expected to. That can be definitely a big problem. One fine day you might find that all the tasks that you had delegated to the other person were behind schedule, because the person you had delegated to was not as capable as you are.

The second thing to be careful about while delegating authority is the possibility that the person does not take on more than he or she can handle. Sometimes enthusiasm can be a deterrent.
