The art of delegation - Deepstash

The art of delegation

  • Clearly define roles and responsibilities, to allow things to flow smoothly.
  • Emphasize accountability: each person has to understand exactly what they’re accountable for in order to grow in a way that benefits both themselves and the company.
  • Democratize decision-making: you don't have to be in every decision-making process.
  • Paint the big picture: understand how even the most (seemingly) menial tasks fit into the overall vision you’ve established.
