A Culture of Delegation™

A Culture of Delegation™

Contributed by Emily Morgan

Watching a leader elevate themselves into more impactful work is one of the most fulfilling parts of my work at Delegate.  Seeing them come in, embrace delegation, thrive and then start to use the same mindset and system to elevate their team is even more incredible to watch. 

This commitment to creating a true  “Culture of Delegation”™ is unique and starts with the Leader.  Their ability to cascade this mindset deeper and deeper into the organization is what creates true leverage.

How to Create a Delegation Plan

How to Create a Delegation Plan
Contributed by our Team Member, Kaurie

Writing down your goals is essential to achieving them, and this is a common practice. However, simply listing them out won’t make them happen.

We offer a customized Delegation Plan to specifically address each goal and the method to getting there. Beneath each primary goal are the next steps and the tasks needing to be done to get closer to achieving that goal. This is not a one plan fits all scenario. Every entrepreneur does not have the same needs based on their business growth plan and unique abilities. Therefore, the delegation plan is designed to match the needs of the business owner.

Gifts That Give Back

Gifts That Give Back
Contributed by our Team Member, Jessi

The social impact of American businesses has continued to garner increased attention in recent years. Individuals and organizations alike have continued to seek more and varied ways to reduce their carbon footprint, give back to communities, and overall become more socially conscious. This has probably never been more true than in 2020, a complicated and difficult year for many organizations.

At Delegate, we continue to strive to make a meaningful impact on our communities. This year, we launched the first-ever Delegate Scholarship, in which we granted 6 free months of administrative assistance to an organization making big waves in their communities. Giving back is also a hot topic among many current Delegate clients.

How Quickly You Should Expect Results

How Quickly You Should Expect Results
Contributed by our Team Member, Tara

When hiring a virtual assistant it's often hard to let go of the things you are so used to handling yourself. The anxiety of hitting a deadline and wondering if the work you delegate out will be completed in a timely manner. Setting a precedence from the start on how long things will take, is a must. At Delegate Solutions we guarantee a 24-hour turnaround on MOST tasks. There are always exceptions and these need to be planned for. I thought we would go through a few examples to give you a better idea of when you should expect results. 

First off, a few things factor into how long a task may take. Deadline, type of task, time the task was assigned, and the complexity of the task should all factor in for both the virtual assistant and you.

How to Get the Most out of an Executive Virtual Assistant

How to Get the Most out of an Executive Virtual Assistant
Contributed by our Team Member, Jessi

Research has proven that success is based critically on having the right person, in the right seat within the organization.

One of the easiest ways to free up the time of key leaders within an organization is by ensuring that they have the right support to allow them the time and freedom to address what is important for their role. In almost all cases, we can say that the right fit is by hiring an administrative assistant. In this increasingly virtual world, virtual assistants are becoming commonplace.

There are so many great benefits to having a quality virtual assistant, but streamlined processes, improved performance, expert knowledge, and time freedom are some of the most important to us here at Delegate.

Myths about Virtual Assistants

Myths about Virtual Assistants
Contributed by our Team Member, Tara

The word Virtual Assistant may be somewhat of a new term for you. Look back a year ago and most of us were going to our office jobs, meeting with people face to face, and even shaking hands. Fast forward to today, in the middle of a global pandemic, and it's rare to hear of anyone going into the office to work. The word “remote” has become the word of 2020 and most likely the word of 2021.

2020 has become the Virtual Assistants’ time to shine! Many have closed their physical offices and are looking for a way to have the strategic support they need, but from afar. When you think about a Virtual Assistant lots of things may come to mind, and many of them may just not be true. While there are a plethora of myths about us out there, I thought I would focus on 5 of my favorites.
