Welcome to another episode of the Digible Dudes podcast, where hosts David Staley and Reid Wicoff engage in insightful conversations with industry leaders. In this episode, we dive deep into the art of “letting go of the vine” and exploring the power of elevating and delegating tasks.
Join us as we tackle the challenge of finding the right balance between letting go and managing expectations. Discover the mindset of embracing “good enough” and how it can lead to a more fulfilling life. In our conversation, we navigate the complexities of managing goals and expectations, particularly when evaluating the performance of direct reports and setting achievable goals.
We shed light on the importance of “managing up” to keep those in charge informed of the plan and introduce you to the EOS system, a powerful tool for measuring progress. Additionally, we share insights on recognizing team members’ wins and the significance of allowing them time to bask in their victories.
But that’s not all! We also dive into the complexities of delegation, promotion, and measuring efficiency in larger organizations. Gain valuable insights on determining the right time to give someone the chance to level up, and understand the impact of a negative flywheel on decision-making.
