How To Delegate At Scale

Introducing the "10/80/10 Framework" for Delegating Critical (and Not-So-Critical) Tasks So You Can Spend Less Time Working "In" Your Business and More Time Working "Over" Your Business

Do you know any “control freaks?”

Maybe it was a teacher or a coach. Or maybe it was an old boss, or even a parent. But whatever form they took, you know the type…

They’re the ones always hovering over your shoulder and “suggesting” that maybe you should just change this one tiny-tiny little detail (i.e. the whole process) before you finish.

We roll our eyes…we grumble…but if the control-freak is an authority-figure, we bite our tongue and get back to work doing it “their way.”

But we don’t like it.

Well, I’ve got some unfortunate news for you…

If you’re a founder or first-time manager, that “control freak” I described, above, just might be you now.

But don’t worry, at one point in time I was that manager, too…and honestly, I’m still fighting hard to not be that guy.
