“Lack of delegation produces disintegration.” That quote is directly from Dr. Richard Holz! He just completed a leadership module for the NCV Division this past weekend and underscored the necessity of every bandmaster to delegate tasks to others so that the rehearsal and other administration work of the band will done in an effective and timely manner.
The task of delegation insures that no one person carries the entire load. Beyond that, it gives people the opportunity to develop skills and competencies that can’t be learned any other way. Delegation honors the gifts and abilities of other people and is one way we recognize that we are all limited and in need of the assistance of others.
Please enjoy reading through our articles related to this topic of delegation. Our guest writer this month is Dr. Steve Brown, President of Arrow Leadership in Canada. Dr. Brown is an amazing leader with a heart to give opportunities for growth both personally and professionally to those he mentors and teaches. Dr. Brown is a partner with SLD through the Arrow program.
Major Clarence Bradbury has written on this same topic and you will enjoy his insights once again. His inclusion of building trust and the need for this precious commodity as a leader is critical.
