6 things to consider:

  • Is your EA fully leveraged? (I’m trying to think if I’ve ever seen a situation where the answer was yes.)
  • Do you have at least one deputy who is truly a right hand and can they take more off your plate?
  • Are you setting aside weekly strategic thinking time – ideally with your deputy — that is consistently maintained and not bumped from your calendar?
  • Is there a quarterly review process where you assess what more you can delegate and to whom? (For a copy of my paper on Controlled Delegation℠, email me: sarah@sarah-levitt.com)
  • Are you building a Self-Correcting Team℠, one that can function without you, make decisions, and meet deadlines? (For a copy of my article, email me: sarah@sarah-levitt.com)
  • Do you have the right people for the above?

Live Session on January 21!  Leadership Courage for 2021.  It is said that a crucible is a both a container and a trial from which something new is forged.  2020 was leadership’s crucible.  On Thursday, January 21st at 3:00ET, I’m hosting a one hour workshop to share the learnings acquired in 2020 and the requisites for leadership courage in 2021.  It’s time to begin again.  And take your hard-won wisdom and experience and forge it into something new – and courageous — this year.  Limited to 5 participants only.  Intimate group setting for maximal learning and discussion.  In support of courageous leadership, I’m offering this workshop at no charge.  To reserve your spot, email me directly: sarah@sarah-levitt.com  When the 5 spots are gone, they’re gone.  Here’s to better, brighter, and bolder for 2021.  Happy New Year!
