Proven Strategy: Step back from doing the work and start working your people. You’re not leading until others are doing the work and you’re focusing on higher-level things. Use our strategies to learn how to delegate, and watch productivity soar.
Here’s a sample of just one of the strategies you get:
Delegate without overlap.
Make a concerted effort to direct your requests for action to the appropriate parties, and make it clear to others who is responsible for which assignments. Keep or publish a list, if necessary, on complex projects. Ask for your team’s help in identifying overlaps or lack of clarity about who is responsible for a task. Accept that everything cannot be done at once, so think through the logical steps and then let go of a project until it is reasonably time to check on progress with each party.
