Effective Delegation

Effective delegation benefits you, the business owner, as well as the rest of the organization. However, when delegating work, I’ve found that asking the question, “Do you understand?” often receives a predictable “Yes,” even if the person does not understand.  So now I ask, “Any quick thoughts on how you plan to proceed?”   The response to this question tells me if my direction was clear, while reinforcing the expectation that their personal initiative is valued.
