Delegating contributes a lot to any business because it makes everything faster and easier. Ashlee Berghoff is here with us today to talk about how to delegate effectively. She is the founder of A Squared Online, a team that helps entrepreneurs to turn into CEOs. Ashlee and her team provide helpful strategic plans about using systems and how to build a team.
The Power of Systems
Ashlee gives out more information about her, how and why she started A Squared Online. She shares that she still manages to balance her time for work and for her daughter. Jaime then asks her about what she believes in the power of systems, processes, and workflows.
“We recognize how powerful they are. We recognize what impact they have on what actually happens. It’s the system that decides what happens and what we want until it gets baked into the system. When we learn how to harness and channel the systems inside and around us, that’s where we can really build the business that we want.” – Ashlee Berghoff
Making Delegation Process Effective
Jaime asks how Ashlee makes the delegation process effective. She says capturing systems eliminate friction points to make a lot of things easier and faster before handing off work. She also says that communication is required to learn how to delegate effectively. This holds true now that virtual communication plays an essential role in business.
“It’s just a basic way to set up from the very beginning to make sure you know what’s going on, can communicate effectively, and help the assistant keep up with the various things that you’re sending their way.” – Ashlee Berghoff
When and What to Delegate
Jaime asks Ashlee when is a good time to start planning for delegation and how she knows what she can delegate. Ashlee explains that there isn’t time in your business where it’s too soon to hire someone because you can build a relationship anytime. She also says that it’s a natural mindset for entrepreneurs to think that their time is free, so she exercises calculating hourly rate with her clients.
“I have a sticky note on my computer that says, “Always ask if someone else can do this.” like is this something someone else can do and, if the answer is yes, then it should be something someone else does.” -Ashlee Berghoff
