I got some interesting feedback from my recent post on DO/DELEGATE/DUMP.
Over the weekend, I came across a ‘Best Practice’ article at Harvard Business Review on “Why Aren’t You Delegating?”
It offers some really good stuff, including a few key Principles to Remember:
- Take note if you’re overwhelmed and your team members don’t have enough to do.
- Keep a visual reminder of your team’s goals so you can easily identify opportunities to delegate.
- Ask your team/direct reports to call you out when you haven’t delegated enough. (This tip alone could help a lot!)
- And, don’t give someone else responsibility for something … and then micromanage the task to death(!)
