AUTHORITY AND RESPONSIBILITY PRINCIPLE
Common management failure is unwillingness to delegate which leads most managers to failure. Unwillingness to delegate could be due to a lack of trust in employees or to a manager's inflexibility in the way things get done, failure to delegate can be damaging to the success of the organization. It overloads the manager with work that others can complete and this leads to stress which eliminates the ability of the manager to function properly. It also denies others the opportunity to utilize their talent and express it and receive recognition. Managers needs to identify the benefits of delegation as it leads to empowerment, where employees have the freedom to contribute ideas and do their jobs in the best possible ways. This involvement can increase job satisfaction for the employee and greater success for the organization. Managers in progressive organizations are more open to delegation; they are giving opportunities to employees at all levels to make more decisions affecting themselves and their work.
