Easing people into delegation is important.
 
You can’t simply dump tasks on people, not if you want them to succeed.
 
Delegate according to the following steps:
 
1.Ask them to be fact finders only. It gives them a chance to become acquainted with the issues and objectives.
 
2.Ask them to make suggestions. This gets them thinking and it gives you a chance to become acquainted with thought process.
 
3. Ask them to implement one of their recommendations, but only after you have given your approval. Set them up for success, not failure.
 
4. Ask them to take action on their own, but to report the results immediately. This will give them confidence, and you will still be able to perform damage control if necessary.
 
5. Give complete authority. This is the final step – what you’ve been working toward.
