Delegation

Sometimes delegating tasks is not an option. However, in situations where a project can and should be done by someone else, invest the time to do it well. When possible, share assignments that provide opportunities for growth. Choose a person with the skills, knowledge, and experience that will be needed for the job. Be sure they have the needed resources. Be clear about the purpose and importance of the task. Then agree on a date to follow-up on progress and schedule it in your calendar. Remember to express your appreciation when the task has been completed, and review what was learned.
