If you have difficulty delegating, you may want to practice DREAM Delegation, a systematic way to organize your thoughts prior to assigning someone a project, suggests Nannette Rundle Carroll in her book The Communication Problem Solver. The more important the project to be assigned, the more important is Dream Delegation. Decide what task/project or portion of a project are you delegating? To whom are you selecting to delegate and why? What will you tell the delegate about her skills and experience as they relate to the delegated works?
