Delegation - Deepstash

Delegation

You delegate when you describe a project or task to one of your team members, give them the objective, and make sure that they have the resources they need. 

Then you send them off to do the job. Mostly, you leave them alone unless they ask for help.

  • Those that are burned out - extra effort is beyond them;
  • People with bad attitude - bring the mood of the team down. And you have to check on them frequently.

  • For new and inexperienced in the job staff -  use a directive delegation style (Tell exactly what you want them to do).
  • For staff that has experience in the job (they know what they are doing) - use the effective, management by objectives delegation method (Tell people the end result that you want and then get out of their way).
  • When the staff person is completely experienced and competent, your method of delegation in this case is simply, easy interaction.
