Written by Richard J. Bryan, leadership expert.
In my travels as a leadership keynote speaker, I talk to leaders inhabiting just about every possible point on the delegation spectrum. I’ve met entrepreneurs who still believe they need to do every single thing themselves—they’re easily recognized by the dark circles of exhaustion under their eyes.
Or the frantic business owners who know they need support, but who haven’t yet found the right employees. I’ve talked to harried CEOs who have already identified and hired support staff, but believe they don’t have time to train them. And finally, the fortunate folks who have successfully cracked the code of delegation.
