Delegation Tree- How can we use this concept to help us “delegate” more? Think of it like a tree!! Root-bound (you do it all) Root issues– I get input from others but I make the decision Trunk issues– I let someone else make the decision but they tell me what they are going to do before they do it Branch issues– Let others make the decisions but let me know later what they There are times when you need to make the decisions with input from others but as you think of other things how often do you get to the “leaf” level– giving things up completely? Letting go of things moves from the root of the tree upward to the leaf. Start, Stop, Continue Exercise What would be the best use of my time? What activity or responsibility is no longer the best use of my time as a leader? To whom can I/will give this responsibility? At what level (trunk, branch, or leaf)? By when?
