These questions might be helpful for delegating services to others:

1. Do you operate a policy of ‘if you want a job done well, do it yourself’?
2. Do you try to do everything yourself?
3. Would you trust your senior staff to do your job as well as you, given time and support? If not, why not?
4. Could some of your staff do it better? How do you feel about that?
5. Do you do a great deal more work than your colleagues? Why?
6. Do you feel stressed? What are the reasons?

Leader should be careful not to kill the spirit of enthusiastic service, which is individual and spontaneous and voluntary. Leader should try to always generate some atmosphere of fresh challenge to the people, so that they will agree enthusiastically to rise and meet it. That is the art of management: to draw out spontaneous loving spirit of sacrificing some energy for a Higher goal. All of us should become expert managers.
