Quick Test of Your Own Delegation Skill

Think you just delegated something?  Don’t ask “do you understand?” — that question doesn’t work.

Here are the two questions you should ask to find out if you did, in fact, delegate.

  1. What do you understand?
  2. Why is this task important?

If the answers you get back match the answers you would have given, then you have delegated successfully.  If they are different, you have a communication gap.
