#20 When Delegating, Explain Why

We've talked about delegation before on the MFS podcast, but one thing that I've neglected to mention is that it's important to 'explain why' when delegating to subordinates.

Explaining 'why' — sometimes called providing context, or communicating executive intent — is important if you want your subordinates to make decisions on your behalf.

This podcast is about how to do it, and how to get context for yourself when you're dealing with a boss who doesn't communicate executive intent.
