About this Course

Delegation Ninja 

What would you do if you could work less and play more this summer . . . and still get everything done? If you weren’t up to your eyeballs in tiresome chores and tiny to-dos? What would you create? Who would you spend time with? The more important question: how much is your time worth? 

In this 8-week course, you’ll learn everything you need to know about delegating like a pro—how to stop being the bottleneck in your life and work and start strategically getting help instead. You’ll learn what to delegate, how to assign tasks effectively to ensure you get the results you want, and how to find the perfect person (or team) to hire. I’ll will be there with you every step of the way, sharing my favorite tips, tools, templates, and resources. 

By the end of this course you will free up a minimum of two to five hours a week. Depending on your budget, interest and involvement, you can easily free up ten hours a week or more. But more importantly, you will feel lighter and freer, more available for the activities and people you really care about. You’ll know how to delegate easily and effectively, building trust and increasing the complexity of tasks you assign along the way, and build even more creative systems that help you scale yourself so that you work less and earn (and play) more.

The Format

The course kicks off on June 5 and will run until the end of July. You can keep up with all of the materials as you go, and if you don’t get a chance to review during the scheduled dates, you will have lifetime access to revisit at any time. 

When you enroll, you’ll fill out a delegation intake form that will help me understand your specific strengths, struggles and pain points to ensure I deliver resources that exactly meet your needs. After that, every week you will get: 

  • An mp3 lesson that you can listen to anytime—two birds, one stone!—listen while walking, working out, commuting)
  • Small assignments to help you identify what to delegate and to whom
  • Templates to save you time

In addition to the core course materials, I will host two live Q&A calls, one each month, where you can ask me anything in real-time to ensure that every single one of your delegation questions gets answered! If you can’t make the call live, you can submit questions in advance and listen to the recording. 

Here's What We'll Cover

Week 1: Delegation Mindset and Breaking Through Initial Barriers
What’s more important to you than busywork? Identify areas in life and work where you may be unintentionally “bottlenecking,” and start identifying ways to relieve the pressure. We’ll talk about common barriers to delegation (whether you’re already delegating some tasks or just starting out), and the mindset reminders that will help you move forward in spite of any reservations. 

Week 2: What to Delegate
What can you and only you do? How can you drop or delegate the rest? We’ll talk about how to identify the T’s: tasks that are tiny, tedious, time-consuming, teachable, or that you’re just downright terrible at. I’ll share examples of dozens of tasks, large and small, across personal and professional that I have delegated in the last five years. You’ll come up with your own list of “low hanging fruit” tasks, easy experiments to start with, even if you don’t yet know exactly how or who to delegate them to. 

Week 3: How to Delegate 
How can you delegate most clearly and effectively to get the results you want? What are common delegation pitfalls to avoid? You will learn how to write task descriptions that are crystal clear and provide exactly the output you need to move forward with ease. You’ll also learn how to map out each month in terms of what opportunities to delegate are coming up. 

Week 4: Live Q&A Call
What’s on your mind? What delegation wins are you celebrating? What challenges are you facing? Ask me anything! Our first Q&A call will be on 6/27 at 1pm ET. You can submit questions in advance, and the call will be recorded for those of you who can’t make it. 

Week 5: Who to Hire
Who is the perfect person or team to help you get the job done on the home and work front? How can you build trust in the beginning? This week we’ll talk about how to write a job description for the perfect helper/s, and how to go about finding them. I’ll share options for how to find a long-term team member and delegation options and services for one-off tasks or projects. 

Week 6: Tools and Apps
What can you automate? What services can help when you’re in a pinch, in person and online? This week we geek out on one of my favorite subjects: tools and apps to help you get way more done in way less time, even at the very last minute! I’ll share all the ways I use apps to help me delegate quickly, clearly, keep up with tasks, and get things done at home and in my business. 

Week 7: Delegation 201—Advanced Tips and Tricks
How can you build systems to smoothly transition tasks between team members? How can you create more scale? What next-level, even-more-strategic tasks can you release your (recovering) perfectionist grip on? Time to get fancy! I’ll be sharing expert-level pointers for how to make the most out of your delegation relationships once you have the basics underway. 

Week 8: Live Q&A Call
As we wrap up, what haven’t I covered that you would love to hear more about? Now that we’re near the end, what delegation wins are you celebrating? What challenges are you still facing? Ask me anything! Our second Q&A call will be on 7/25 at 1pm ET. You can submit questions in advance, and the call will be recorded for those of you who can’t make it live.
