Practical Advice for Delegating Tasks



  • When you grow, it’s hard to delegate the tasks you do to someone else.
  • Delegation does not need to mean complacency, because you still keep eyes on the tasks. As an owner or manager, you’re still overseeing the tasks ensuring their quality.
  • A lot of individuals dilute the tasks by over delegating. To avoid this, the goal should be high quality production of tasks and empowering the team to grow and contribute to the success of the business.
  • Bonus: try this template.
