Are you a yes man or a no man (or maybe you’re a woman)? If you’re always taking on more and more work because you feel like you can never say no then you need to learn how to delegate. Control freaks listen up, because you will face some serious burn out unless you learn to depend on your teammates. Jerry McGuire famously said “help me, help you” and that’s some advice we can all take to heart.

Learning how and when to delegate can be one of the hardest management lessons. Here are tips on how to make these decisions easier.

  • Help! I need somebody. Even the Beatles knew when to give it up.
  • Helping managers help themselves.
  • When NOT to delegate, because sometimes you can do it better than anyone else.
