Delegating work is a nightmare most of the time!

But it doesn’t need to be. There is a method to doing it right.

Delegate things the right way, and you will see 5 CEOs in this picture. Each solving a unique problem for the ecosystem — the ecosystem being your business. (image)

The last team we built, it took everyone a while to understand my expectations, and while I was fortunate enough to find a bunch of great guys, the initial couple of years needed me to be on top of everything, figuring out what needs to be done, keeping track of those items, pushing everyone to get results. Unfortunately, I have to do it all again. We will get there again where people can work independently, without me having to drive everything, but it is going to take some time to get in the groove.

THE FRUSTRATION

If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

SO, IS DELEGATING A MISTAKE? OR, ARE YOU MAKING A MISTAKE THE WAY YOU ARE DELEGATING?

You gotta delegate challenges, or better still, “results”, not items from a to-do list.

DELEGATING DOESN’T MEAN YOU WILL BE AN ABSENTEE

DELEGATION IS HARD, BUT AN INESCAPABLE NECESSITY

That’s it for today; see you tomorrow!
