There are managers who believe that only they have the skills, knowledge and expertise to get the job done. Or even worse - they feel that they need to micro-manage the work their staff do to make sure it's done properly. Unfortunately even though they believe they are the "best" at completing certain tasks it doesn't necessarily make them the most effective or productive.

One of your key managerial roles is to get results through others. Highly effective managers routinely delegate tasks to their direct reports because they understand the value of growing their team and improving their personal productivity.
