Effective Delegation of Authority is a fifteen minutes short read on the process of effectively delegating tasks to one of your employees. Helpful for the new manager who’s looking for practical tips and steps not to be forgotten. From thinking of what exactly you want to delegate, building in checkpoints while the task is being executed to giving concrete feedback of what went well and what can be improved the next time.
You may argue whether this content should have the format of an e-book rather than a blog. There’s nothing new in the book., Yet, for a newbie reading this one saves a lot of introductory and distractions in a larger text book.
