28: How to Delegate Effectively

How to Delegate Effectively

Do you struggle with delegating? 

It can be hard not to think “I could do this better myself” or “it takes too much time to teach someone.”

It doesn’t matter if I’m coaching 1:1, in a group setting, or in an intensive, delegation is a topic that people are both excited about and uncomfortable with. 

Trust me when I say that it is so worth it in the long run though!

In this episode, we’re talking all about how to delegate the right way, and I've boiled this down to five key pieces of information that you need to communicate in order to delegate effectively.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • How to delegate effectively 
  • What can go wrong with delegating 
  • Fears that people have about delegating 
  • The importance of being clear on expectations 
  • Why you should start your delegating with a verb
  • How to explain your rationale 
  • Giving a clear set of parameters 
  • How to communicate what a clear win would look like
  • Giving a clear level of authority

Now you have your own success plan for delegation. If you think someone else could use this plan, go ahead and share this episode on social media and tag them in it!
