Be Open to Feedback. Those who delegate are not above feedback. Even though you’re the one assigning the work, you’re not elevated to some mystical level above your team. Listen to the feedback from your team. Be responsive when concerns are presented. Fix your mistakes. In my own leadership, I learn a lot from those I lead. Often, the people working on the front line have a great deal of insight to offer.
As part of my series about the “How To Delegate Effectively and Be Completely Satisfied With the Results”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Victoria Pelletier, Vice President, Talent & Transformation IBM.
