If you want to be effective, when you delegate can be as important as what you delegate. Follow this advice to time your directions just right.  

Don’t delegate work:

  • The minute someone gets to work.
  • Right before lunch.
  • After an argument has just concluded.
  • When the other person is overwhelmed or distracted.
  • You aren’t prepared.

Do delegate work when:

  • The employee is calm and relaxed.
  • You have the person’s attention.
  • Delaying could result in serious consequences.
  • You are prepared to walk the person through the assignment.
