This Ministry Specific Coaching Guide on Effective Delegation follows the four stages and 11 frames on the storyboard. These sequential stages consist of:
- Understand your leadership/ management style, approach and aims before you start to delegate.
- Plan what you can successfully delegate at a detailed level.
- Execute your delegation plan by assigning tasks carefully and communicating clearly.
- Review your delegated tasks regularly with the person to whom you assign tasks and learn how to better delegate each time you do it.
Apart from the specific introductory notes for coaches, most critically, the CG provides suggested questions that can be asked of the coachee to help open up the conversation. These targeted questions (and support coaching notes) exist for all the frames in the storyboard. The individual being coached can then refer to their own separate storyboard as a guide to the conversation (which is likely to be over several sessions) and the coach invites the individuals to think about application issues by asking the questions and probing further when answers are given.
