You know what’s not sexy about business?

Exhaustion, indecision, not being truly seen as the brilliant, powerful woman that you are.

How to effectively delegate to your team

By Amira Alvarez

Last year I started a new process with my team – I call it Delegate to Done.  

Not only has it saved me a MINIMUM of 3 hours per project… (probably more!)

It’s increased the PLEASURE I have running my business. 

Outcomes have gone up.
Frustration has gone down.

And not just for me… but for my Team as well.

What’s not to love about that?

The Delegate-to-Done (D-to-D) Framework is all about CLARITY and COMMUNICATION. In fact this structure forces YOU to get SUPER CLEAR about all the critical aspects of a project and gives you a structured way to communicate that.

It takes me about 30 minutes of up front work to do this. You have to trust that this is worth the time. I promise you it will SAVE you time and tons of wasted effort overall. Plus, what’s the alternative?

Some brief conversation where you assume that they get it and that you’re all on the same page? Then get frustrated that they don’t?

As you’d imagine, that doesn’t work. Ask me how I know. 🙃

We have used it for projects related to initiatives around:

  • Internal SOPs 
  • Our Contracts and Payments Process
  • Social Media (multiple projects here)
  • The Podcast 
  • Client Retention
  • Metrics
  • Program Management
  • Messaging
  • Our Program Coaching
  • And more…

The best part is once I get all my thoughts out of my head and into this structure, my team knows EXACTLY what I want!  They can easily start troubleshooting how to make it happen and I don’t require a ton of touch points from me along the way. They know what success looks like because I know what success looks like.

Seems obvious but we often try to short cut this.

We are able to move faster and more efficiently with initiatives and with each of the checkpoints, I always know where the status of the project is… WHOO HOO!  Game changer :)

The D-to-D Framework requires that you get clear and identify…

  • Phased Check-In Dates
  • Ownership and Roles
  • The Problem 
  • The Outcome
  • The Impact (for Clients, Company, Team)
  • The Success Criteria
