Given that many things get MAGNIFIED in the remote space – the good, the bad and the not so great, what is important for you to focus on?
As with many items, let’s go back to the basics around delegation. Starting with the 5 Ws, consider the:
- WHO and
- Of course, add the HOW
All of these elements are critical to discuss in the digital delegation space. Of particular note be sure to share as much as possible around the:
- WHAT - What’s really needed with this task? Be clear on what the end result is and what “success will look like”. Moving back to a management by objectives framework, how many of us led pre-internet, can be useful in terms of getting granular about what’s expected?
- WHY - The why around delegation often gets missed. What is important about this task? How does it fit into the bigger picture? Have you shared enough about the context? Remember, in the virtual space we often doing look “beyond the screen”. What’s important to share around this piece?
- WHEN - Be sure to build in enough checkpoints for this. What are the milestones and when will you check in?
There’s a tendency to not delegate because it’s unclear what other’s may have on their plate. This is where regular communication and one-on-ones become critical for discussion.
