1.No manager is an island.
Even though others may have different approach or standards we are setting ourselves up to fail if we think we have to do everything ourselves.Accept that in today's interdependent world there is a shared responsibility for getting things done.
2.Delegate don't abdicate
Remember if tings go wrong, it's ultimately our fault. Assess the risk of the failure before we decide to delegate a task and manage any risk appropriately. The only person we can blame is us for not effectively delegating the task at the beginning. And we never know they might even do it better than us.
3.Cristal clear tasks
If we can't define the task to be delegated, it isn't ready for delegation. Good task to delegate are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time bound.Fuzzy, vague tasks are impossible to complete or result in such a mess we have squandered more time than we could potentially have saved.Part of the art effective delegation is creating smart tasks from fuzzy ones and communicating them clearly.
