Chapter 30. Technical Supervisors’ Deleg... > Technical Supervisor #4: Shawn, Chie...

Technical Supervisor #4: Shawn, Chief, Space Intelligence

1: What specific challenges did you experience in delegating to technical professionals?
A: In some cases people do not wish to be in charge of anything, so have remained where they feel comfortable and happy in their work. But even though I have heard, “I don’t want to supervise,” from several people, they will gladly volunteer to take charge of training for new hires, or other side-tasks, and slowly they find that they can supervise and still enjoy their work.
2: What specific recommendations would you make to help other technical professionals develop their delegation skills?
A: The only way that I got where I am today is that my boss, who held the job for 24 years, placed a variety of responsibilities upon me, and these tasks gave me the experience I needed to do my job today. I do the same with my current employees, and as I stated earlier, once a task is given, a technical professional will become very creative.
