One of the most impactful things successful leaders do is to delegate: To envision a better position for their organisation, pull a great team together, connect the right team members with the different “steps” to the vision and then watch the picture unfold.

Delegation empowers people, realises goals and creates winning organisations. You can start TODAY. And it can be as simple as handing over to your Virtual Assistant a few of the tasks listed below:

  1. Managing your inbox by flagging important emails for you and answering the rest
  2. Sending payment reminders and statements to clients
  3. Bank and account recons
  4. Building and sorting your existing database
  5. Collecting feedback and testimonials from clients
  6. Gathering quotes from providers
  7. Gathering data from your industry
  8. Basic research on a new idea
  9. Posting transactions to your bookkeeping system
  10. Sending follow-up emails to leads, clients, and meeting requests
  11. Meeting Minutes
  12. Uploading items to your online store or resource centre
  13. Refreshing your website copy
  14. Transcribing webinars, short videos, podcast episodes so you can digest the info easier
  15. Reading publications, blogs, articles and summarising relevant content

Each assistant has their own unique strengths and skillsets, and it is unlikely that a single assistant will handle all of the tasks listed above, but once you start delegating, you will soon taste the rewards – increased productivity, more time on your hands and greater impact in your industry. From there it gets easier and easier to delegate to the next team member. Start today. You won’t look back.
