Obstacle

Delegation can be an opportunity to increase motivation through autonomy. Here's a simple way to provide independence without losing control by doing so.

Étapes

1

Define mission constraints

Giving more autonomy does not mean giving carte blanche. Explain the constraints you have regarding Budget and Means so that he/she can act accordingly. As part of the budget, you can allocate an envelope and let it be used freely.

 

You can say, "I want you to take care of[Mission name]. For that we have an envelope of[amount]. I leave you the freedom to use this amount as you wish.”

2

Outside the constraints, give carte blanche

Outside the constraints, he/she can achieve the objective, no matter how. Let him/her organize his/her work as he/she wishes. A report has to be made? Let him/her present as he/she wishes (Powerpoint, video, whiteboard, Prezi, ....). A customer needs to be canvassed? Let him/her choose the CRM he/she likes according to the budget.

 

You can say: "Now that you know the budget and the tools, you have carte blanche for[Goal]. You can use whatever means you have.”
