This week, let’s look at delegation through eyes of the receiver. What do employees need to best reach the objective you’ve set? How can you increase their ownership of the results (not just the process) you’ve entrusted to them?
How effective will delegation be when you invite your team member to clearly state these two things….remember, this is him/her talking ….”Now that you’ve articulated the objective, here’s the direction I need AND here’s the discretion I need?” How will you respond?
