In order to delegate work more effectively, it is important to learn how to relinquish control of certain tasks. This will require you to learn how to trust people to get the task done right. This trust can start by creating some type of priority system for the tasks that need to be completed. Some tasks you will keep on your plate and the rest can be delegated to trusted workers. Finally, when delegating tasks make sure you are using your worker’s strengths and avoiding their weaknesses.
