      Delegation: Business Strategy & Tips
for next week!

“To truly understand business, you have to where all the hats
before you can take some of them off.”
~ Jim McNelis, CEO, Dito, 2013 Inc. 500

Your Delegation Awareness:

Delegation is a business strategy which isn’t implemented too effectively too often. Right now I bet you are recalling some really ineffective delegation situations you’ve experienced! On Monday’s post, I’m going to dive into this topic more. So for now, let’s just give you a tip or two to implement next week and beyond  🙂

I have witnessed effective delegation being completed in the manner of Jim McNelis’s quote. If something is going to be delegated, it is wise to know everything that needs to occur first hand so you can specifically share what needs to be accomplished. Additionally, you should share some tips on how you have found to accomplish it successfully. Once delegated, trust your delegatee and give them authority to deliver in the required time frame.

Yes, delegation is really this simple! Even though we over-simplify in this blog for everyone to apply our brilliant business strategies and tips, implementing this one can be this simple. On Monday’s post I will share the 2 major reasons why delegation becomes ineffective.

Business Strategy to optimize your leadership or business performance
via delegation:

If you are seeking to be an Agent OF Change, you will need to learn how to delegate effectively to optimize performance. One of the most effective and efficient ways to optimize is consider your own and your team’s strengths and weaknesses.

Make a list of strengths and weaknesses. Reallocate job responsibilities accordingly to those who have naturally excelled in particular tasks. If your whole tasks lists is assessed appropriately, you can release some activities which are bogging you down. You know, the stuff that is truly keeping you from the tasks only you can truly do best. If you do this with your whole team, everyone will have equal opportunity to release tasks, which are difficult, and take on new tasks to complete more effectively and efficiently.

DELEGATION WARNING TO BUSINESS LEADERS: Delegating a task doesn’t mean you aren’t responsible for its completion and success. It simply means you outsourced the activities to be completed by another. You are still fully responsible for delivering it successfully.

The choice is yours. Are you going to be an Agent OF Change and take it on yourself or have another bring about the change? Choose wisely to optimize overall performance.

Inspiring Quotes to assist you with Delegation:

“To handle yourself use your head. To handle others use your heart.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

  1. Great quotes! I have several tasks on my plate right now and I know I will be delegating this to an outsourced vendor of said services. I am learning I can’t do it all myself. I have to ask for help!

    Looking forward to more about delegation!
