How to Delegate Effectively

Do you feel frustrated by juggling a huge workload and just wish your team could take it off you to give you some breathing space? 

 

But you know delegating it will take FOREVER and you just don't have the bandwidth to do it, so you're left with the responsibility squarely on your shoulders?

 

Delegation doesn't have to be hard.

 

Here are my top 3 tips to make it easier for you:

 

  1. Decide on the structure or system that needs to be created so you don't have to keep reinventing the wheel. Yes, it will take time upfront by that investment will be worth it in the long run.
  2. Talk about 'what' needs to be done, not 'how' it needs to be done. When you slip into the 'how', you can fall into the trap of micro-managing your team. Empower them to do what you recruited them to do.
  3. Set clear expectations. Discuss what 'complete' looks like, when it's due, how it's due and what they need to do if they run into any challenges.
