3 Variables of Effective Delegation

  • Consider the Person: think about their strengths and weaknesses and personal style. Think about how they act and the kinds of assignments they’ve handled.
  • Consider the Situation: Ask yourself whether the assignment might be dangerous for your team member, the company, or others.
  • Consider the Work: Make sure your team member has all the resources he or she needs to get the job done.

RELATED IDEAS

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. 

  • Specify the outcome you desire to the people you trust to deliver it.
  • Establish controls, identify limits to the work and provide sufficient support, but resist upward delegation. 
  • Keep up to date with progress, and focus on results rather than procedures. 
  • When the work is completed, give recognition where it’s deserved.
Do

Simply put, act on your tasks. The 2-minute rule can help with that:  If you can complete a task in two minutes or less, do it now.

It's amazing what you can accomplish in just 120 seconds: write an email, make a quick phone call, pull a report and so on.
