Takeaways for Leaders:
The most joy you’ll find in leadership is to delegate.
What keeps us from delegating?
We enjoy doing the tasks ourselves
We do tasks that make us feel accomplished
We do not want to burden someone else and feel guilty asking someone to do less enjoyable tasks
We might have control issues and trust issues
We feel like we don’t have time to teach someone to do these tasks
How do we delegate?
Name the task and name who is going to do that task
Define the responsibilities
Create a timeline of transition
Make the ask
Execute the timeline
Create a follow-up plan and use it
Train them to delegate
