“Don’t buy a dog and bark yourself” – this was the heading of a chapter in the book, The Rule Breaker’s Book of Business by Roger Mavity, which I read recently. I loved Roger’s take on the art of delegation. It is often assumed, like many other business skills, that as we enter private practice and we start to grow, or if we manage a service and have a team around us, that we automatically possess the skills to delegate tasks to other people. I am not great at delegation, and will be the first to put my hand up about that… something about being a perfectionist I think! How do we work out if we need to delegate?
