When it comes to growing your business, delegating is one of the most efficient ways. Not only will you have far more free time to not only be productive but finally you can spend time doing the things you actually enjoy.
So, how do I give up control and start to delegate you might ask?
Follow these 4 important tips:
Decide which tasks you should delegate!
With this you need to think short-term and long term, what do you need help on immediately? How can somebody else take control of this task? An example of this could be you need to manage your diary, are you constantly missing appointments, turning up late and always stressed? Remember first impressions count.
Introduce some team members
Yes, success is wonderful when it’s your own but what about when you can share that with others? With help comes extra opportunities and growth! You need to accept that you can’t run a business all on your own and that’s okay.
Choose the right Virtual Assistant for you!
It can be a struggle to hire anyone, get to know your virtual assistant, whether that’s through a face to face chat over a coffee or a simple phone call! Give them direction and show them that you believe in them, this can be done in many ways, from weekly catch-ups to asking many questions. it’s important that you feel confident in their capabilities and you let them know this!
Don’t be over-controlling
Delegating can be a struggle, especially if you’re very used to running everything on your own. You can guide your virtual assistant but not too much. You need to remember that the tasks you set are no longer your tasks, it might take a while for this to become the regular but that’s expected!
Remember, mastering delegating isn’t something that will happen overnight. These things take time and patience, and that will come!
