If I delegate a task, how do I know it will get done properly?

delegating

 

Q - I’m so busy, but I’m worried that if I delegate the job won’t be done properly...

A - In any work situation there are tasks that must be done by certain people, however if you really look at your tasks honestly you will find that you could delegate more than you think. Yes, you have high standards and yes, your staff might not get it 100% right first time, but once you have briefed them (make sure you do this thoroughly) and helped them complete the task the first time (be open minded if they have done things differently), they will get better and better – maybe even better than you could have done yourself and you will be free to concentrate your efforts where they are really needed.  Ask yourself “if I’m doing the work, who is leading this team”.
