Delegation Do's & Don'ts, inspired by an infographic from @strategic.coach
Do you struggle to delegate work? Wonder how much management is too much? Delegation is a tricky skill to manage, it can be difficult to let go of your projects. Release control of parts of your projects. I know I sometimes struggle with this, but the benefits can far outweighs the drawbacks. Hopefully this list will help you become better delegators, and achieve your goals faster, together as a team.
This week’s recap notes: Strategic ‘The Thick of It’ Quotes
This is NOT PG-13! I was a late-comer to this show, but binge watched it on Netflix recently and absolutely loved it! Peter Capaldi's amazing sweary delivery was hilarious to watch. Makes me want to level-up my own swear game. Fuckity-Bye.
This week's #booknotes, part 12 of my notes on Creative Strategy and the Business of Design by Douglas Davis
Looking for a technique to organise your information at the start of a project? It’s difficult to do your job as a creative with too little or too much information. That is where the Creative Strategy Framework comes into its own. This is a deep dive into this framework which allows you to play detective, organising and extracting insights. Filling in the missing parts, removing irrelevant stuff and reducing information overload. Why use this? As Douglas says in his book: "it helps begin the process of developing relevant solutions that are on brand, on strategy, and on message."
