As your business grows, you’ll need to learn how to delegate work in a law firm. Delegating well is key to your productivity and sanity when things get hectic. But you’re probably bad at it. We all are. Delegation is a skill that you can learn and improve over time. It takes practice, but your work to get better will show real results in your team’s output. To do it well, you’ll need to use a tool for setting which tasks are priorities. You’ll need to find your team’s individual strengths and delegate tasks according to those competencies. Encourage building new skills and using new tools, and trust the output (but verify its accuracy). And, finally… let go. You might be a perfectionist, or you might just be “particular.” Which means you probably don’t want to delegate work in your law firm, and if you do, you’re reasonably likely to micromanage the work you do delegate. Don’t do that. If you develop the “let it go” muscle, your team will thank you and you’ll be able to focus on your own most-important tasks.
