December is the best time to delegate because everyone wants to take a vacation.
And vacations are the best opportunity to delegate tasks.
Let’s face it. It’s tougher to do someone else’s work when they are standing there watching you do it.
Here are 2 ways to empower your team during December:
It’s abdicating to dump all your work into a colleague’s lap.
It’s delegating to teach a member of your team to handle one aspect of your job while you are out of town.
Tip 2: Friday instead of Monday
I had two teachers junior year in high school.
First semester all our papers were due on Monday. So I worked all weekend.
Second semester all our papers were due on Friday. So I worked all week and had the weekends off.
