The single most important delegation mistake, and how to avoid it


You're ambitious and want to perform at the top of your game. You take up a lot of work to get things moving forward, and because of that you have the impression that you're always running short of time. Perhaps you also have the feeling that you are regularly spending your precious time on things you shouldn't be doing, or that less important things are eating up your time (like going through your inbox for example - see our previous blog 'Yesterbox' for a solution to that ;-) ).

And then those smart consultants/teachers/coaches come in, telling you that you have to delegate more. But you've already tried that one, right? And you ended up with even more work afterwards, right?

If you recognise yourself in this short scenario, you definitely have to read on!

'Yesterbox' is a way to handle your email inbox created by Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com.

How to deal with the variety of business parameters

Industrial Engineering

A business, regardless of whether it's a small or a big one, is a complex system of many different parameters and influence factors.
People, cash flow, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials,... all have an influence on the performance level of your team/business. And you, as a leader, must be able to manage (or at least oversee) it all.
With that degree of complexity, it's not a surprise that you -just as many other leaders- sometimes lose the overview and miss an element.

And there's nothing wrong with that, we're humans, and humans make mistakes and drop stitches!
But, there's a solution for that!

Read along, and discover how you can handle this complexity.
