About This Episode

This is the second of a two-part episode about delegation. Matt Seaton, VP of Operations at BELAY, joins the podcast to discuss the nuts and bolts of delegation.

He and Lisa will talk about how to be effective at delegation, how much you should delegate, the differences between remote vs traditional, how to build a culture of delegation and much more.

1. A failure to delegate can become exhausting.

When you’re in that situation, you become the defacto go-to person in the area that you’re not delegating. The better option is to find another leader you can trust with their decision-making, make sure they have buy-in, and delegate that task to them.

2. Delegation starts with trust.

Spend time getting to know your peers and the people working for you. Look to understand what drives them and identify those who have potential to be next-level leaders. These are the people you can pour your knowledge into and trust to make decisions.

3. Communication is the most important factor in successful delegation.

Clarity is always key, and you can’t have clarity without communication. You need to have articulated the right steps, the deadline, and a clear example of the outcome. The worst situation is when someone has been delegated something but doesn’t have any details. There’s no way they can be successful. Always communicate!
