Delegating work may feel daunting, but when done correctly, it can lower risk in your business, writes Elizabeth Grace Saunders, CEO of Real Life E. Here’s how to get over the fear of delegating.

•  Find your focus. Before you know what needs to be delegated, you must know what tasks you’ll be spending time on. Where can you provide the highest value?

•  Stick to your strengths. Any tasks outside your core strengths and role should be delegated to others.

•  Name vague fears. Write out your fears to get a better understanding of what your real concerns are so you can begin to address them. This allows you to break through to the next level.

•  Address the risks. After naming your fears, write out a plan on how to reduce risks. This helps put checks and balances in place.
