Why Delegating Doesn't Work
Show Notes

If you’re thinking to yourself that you’re busier now than when you were doing all of the tasks by yourself or questioning if you’ve hired the right person for the job, there’s a chance the way you’re delegating tasks isn’t working for you. This week’s episode 53 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about why delegating doesn’t work!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing that there is more to delegating than just handing a task over and actionable steps you can take right now to offload the amount of work on your plate, not just shift it. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Liz and Lu, founders of Wild Isles Swim, a women’s owned swimwear brand that creates comfortable swimwear for women with a larger bust while sourcing and using sustainable materials.
  • The reasons why delegating might not be working for you. 
  • Setting up proper communication amongst your team so the information they need is readily available. 
  • Knowing (and practicing) the difference between delegating and accountability. 
  • Putting in place clear and well-documented processes so that anyone, regardless of their role can pick up and execute a task need be. 
  • Using your business blueprint as the foundation for your business to which all decisions will be aligned.
  • My deep thoughts on Elon Musk buying Twitter. 

Having a strong vision is the key to setting your communication and processes up for optimal performance so that you can delegate successfully and have more time for the things you are better suited for.
