MFM Topic, SAT 05-11-22:-effective delegation: a leadership secret (5)
Welcome to MFM Devotional, 05/11/22
PRAISE & WORSHIP:
1 O worship the King all-glorious above,
O gratefully sing his power and his love:
our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.
2 O tell of his might and sing of his grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is his path on the wings of the storm.
3 Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.
4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in you do we trust, nor find you to fail.
Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!
5 O measureless Might, unchangeable Love,
whom angels delight to worship above!
Your ransomed creation, with glory ablaze,
in true adoration shall sing to your praise!

Delegation is a progressive process. When you delegate authority, ensure that you supervise.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR 5/11/22:
I DECREE THAT YOU WILL NEVER GIVE UP AT THE EDGE OF YOUR BREAKTHROUGH, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
SAT NOV 5 2022 MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we learnt four reasons why some leaders do not delegate. The fifth likely reason could be that some leaders do not know how to delegate. I had mentioned earlier that the skill for effective delegation is one of the hallmarks of a great leader. Therefore, today, we will fill that knowledge gap by turning our attention to how leaders should delegate.
The first step in becoming an effective delegator is to set clear goals and expectations. Let your team members know what they are required to do or achieve, why the task is important, the timeline for delivery and other details that will help their good performance.
Break down the responsibilities into smaller, easier to measure chunks and let them know whether or not they have met your expectations. Jesus’ leadership proves this point. He clearly made His vision, goals and expectation known to His apostles.
He gave His apostles specific directions and launched them into their first ministry assignment in Matthew 10:5-10. Later, after they had gained more training and experience, He turned His ministry to them before He ascended to heaven (Matthew 28:17-20). In each of these instances, Jesus made His goals and expectations very clear to His apostles.
The second step is to give the people the freedom to act. This is quite fair if you are going to hold the people accountable for their actions and performance. Delegate the authority to make decisions to them and resist the temptation to interfere. Overrule their decisions only when absolutely necessary.
As you oversee what they do, ask them questions on how they are doing and why. Also allow them to ask you questions. Listen to them and encourage feedback. Get to know if they are doing well on the task and where they need some help. Jesus, our role model, also showed that a key element of delegation is oversight or supervision.
He did not just give His apostles tasks and abandon them. He said to them, “Behold, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20b). And in John 14, He promised to send His Spirit to guide and encourage them. Truly, delegation is the start of an interaction; it is collaboration!
1. Father, equip me with the skills of effective delegation, in the name of Jesus.
2. Father, make me an effective communicator of goals and expectations to my team members, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, as I delegate authority to people, make me a good support and overseer to them, in the name of Jesus.
4. O God, make me a good listener and user of feedback, in the name of Jesus.
5. O God, help me to see delegation as interaction and collaboration, in the name of Jesus.
6. My Father, help me to use the knowledge and skill on effective delegation to advance Your Kingdom, in the name of Jesus.
7. My Father, anoint me to succeed, in the name of Jesus.
