Delegate

 

When you delegate, do projects come back different from what you expected? Don’t burn out trying to fix things after the fact. instead, clearly define the project: its purpose, expected outcomes, deadline, and budget.

Carefully choose whom to delegate by asking, "Do they have the time and skills? Are they motivated? Do I have time to coach them through it?" People want to exceed your expectations, so set them up for success.

Make sure to celebrate success and show plenty of gratitude when the job is well done.
