Delegate in the right setting — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Dread delegating? You’re not alone. Many managers will explain an assignment, give a deadline, say “See me with any questions” and rush away. It’s better to delegate in a calm, unhurried manner. Close your office door and let the employee know why you’ve chosen her to take charge of a project. Praise the individual and express your confidence that the job’s in good hands. Get input on deadlines and implementation so that the employee’s a participant in the process.
