Too often busy managers and supervisors delegate work with the total assumption that all they have to do is tell someone what they want done. If the task is important, then its important enough to delegate properly. Make sure you delegate the “What-When-How” of each assignment. Don’t assume anything. If you do the net result is delayed completion, missed deadlines, confusion, follow-up chats to re-explaining what was intended, etc. Productivity can increase just by building the habit of complete delegation. Make sure you delegate with the end in mind and do it through the Lens of the Employee. Confirm their understanding of the assignment and manage your delegation effectively.
