To Delegate is to Lead

  • Directive feedback rewrite/edit thoroughly and direct specific changes. This is good when there is a lot of time to work with the team, when it’s a junior team who isn’t used to doing the task at hand and/or when it’s clear that the thing is not headed in the right direction.
  • Detailed notes specific direction about the flow, some editorial comments and overall feedback about where the team is headed and why this is correct/incorrect. This approach is helpful for new teams to understand how their manager is thinking about the challenge and solution. It guides and provides specific support and help when needed.
  • Input thematic perspective on the overall document, shifts to make in approach and/or general style comments. Most useful when delegating to someone who is ready to drive with their point of view, and to grow into crafting the thing themselves.
