Publisher's Summary

Number-one Amazon best seller in the Office Management, Nonprofit Management & Leadership, and Small Business Franchise categories 

"So many managers fail at delegation, a core essential for handling complexity in every organization. This quick read is a must for new managers - and also for senior managers who are seeking a framework to help newer managers avoid the common mistakes." (Dave Stachowiak, host of the Coaching for Leaders podcast) 

Do you feel stressed and overwhelmed with tasks that you can’t keep up with? Are you struggling with the delegation of work to your employees? 

Effective Delegation of Authority is a brief guide for new managers that will help you improve your delegation skills in simple steps. 

If you’re a manager or entrepreneur who leads three or more employees, then this book is for you. It’s a super-short book that’ll help you avoid the common mistakes that new managers make when delegating tasks. 

It includes a comprehensive step-by-step process that tells you exactly what to do before delegation, during delegation, and after delegation. 

You’ll also get immediately applicable tactics that you can implement straightway with your subordinates.

Here’s a partial list of what’s covered: 

  • How to determine what to delegate to your employees before starting the delegation process
  • The method you should follow to decide who to delegate work to on your team
  • The five traits that every task should have before you delegate it
  • How to describe authority levels the right way before you delegate work
  • How to avoid micromanaging your employees
  • How to check in with your subordinates and give them meaningful feedback. 
  • How to avoid being too prescriptive, while still giving your employees a good description of what they need to accomplish
  • The most important thing you should do after you delegate a task to verify understanding
  • Some examples of delegation to help you understand the concepts better

The book is divided into three sections that will serve as your new manager checklist:   

Section I: Before Delegation

  • Step One: Determine What to Delegate
  • Step Two: Determine Who to Delegate to

Section II: During Delegation

  • Step One: Explain the Task Clearly
  • Step Two: Describe Goals, Not Actions
  • Step Three: Give Clear Timelines
  • Step Four: Describe Authority Levels 
  • Step Five: Put it in Writing 

Section III: After Delegation

  • Step One: Check In
  • Step Two: Give Meaningful Feedback

Really short

Some items seemed redundant as short as the book was. There was a repetition of ideas. The introduction was repeated in the first chapter then again at the end. I would have liked more tips being the book was so short; and not as much repetition.

Can't access documents

The audio book references a pdf that is no longer accessible. Audible doesn't have it & the book producer won't help since it was purchased through a vendor.

Basic knowledge you already have but good to hear again

A little self-indulgent on behalf of the author. Most of the info is everything that you already know about delegation, but it’s a decent review. I would recommend this for entry level managers or team leads.

Concise. Clear. Helpful. Exactly what I was looking for.

I found this book to be very useful, it gives very clear guidelines, step-by-step instructions for how to delegate well and why to do each step. The PDF template as a bonus is the perfect takeaway that I needed so that I didn’t need to take notes as I was listening. Very grateful for the lack of fluff. I wish every leadership/management book was this concise and clear. Saves me time and money.
