Delegate something small
When we’re used to doing everything ourselves, letting someone else help can feel like a weakness. But it’s actually a strength. It just takes a little practice to get there. So start by delegating one small task to someone you trust. And then trust them to do it. Three pointers that will help both of you:
- Give clear instructions but allow room for creativity.
- Let them work independently, but pre-arrange a progress check-in.
- Give context for the task so he knows why it’s important, who is depending on him, and what success looks like.
