“Disconnect from your ego for a minute when you’re talking about delegation and automation. Do people actually need to talk to you? With a good structure, they don’t.” – Jonathan Goodman


You’re not as important as you think you are (sorry)

Your ego will tell you that everyone needs to have direct contact with you, but that’s just not true. Jonathan has ways to step back and let your program run without you being there.

Keep your essential message, voice, and tone

Everyone will have their own way of sharing your message. Before you start delegating, codify your guidelines and standard operating procedures. How do you talk about the things you want to tell people?

It’s all about communication

When you delegate work to others, they need to know exactly what you expect from them. For that, you need to know what to prepare, and how to prepare it.
