In the last episode, we discussed the importance of an appropriate level of autonomy. Step 6 of delegation is to review the plan the other party has created:
- You are checking for major issues, not minor ones. If they are going to run off a cliff and/or not meet the results you’ve outlined during the first meeting, then you need to step in.
- You are determining future check-in points.
- You are determining how you can best help with resources and relationships.
If your review of the plan keeps ownership of it with them, then you’ll empower them to start the project or task with enthusiasm.
