Rule 1 of delegation

Management, Team building, Time ManagementEdward KiledjianComment

An important tenet of efficient and effective time management is the art of delegation. Anytime I talk about delegation with an executive, they either support it or avoid it like the plague. Their reaction is predicated on past experience.

When delegating a task, executives often forget the first golden rule of delegation: training and communication. In order for the work to be performed to your satisfaction, you need to ensure that you communicate your requirements and expectations to the other person clearly and concisely.

Taking some time upfront will save you tons of frustration and having to redo the work in the back end.

A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
