Once we have too many things in our plate, Eisenhower Matrix becomes less usable, as there are too many things to get done, even after delegating and deleting. Radical delegation is for tasks in two top quadrants of Eisenhower Matrix - Do & Schedule.
Assess each tasks in top two quadrants, and understand the the leverage (High/Low) and who could do this (Only You/Others)
- High Leverage + Only You
- Focus Deeply
- High Leverage + Other
- Delegate to the most suitable person
- Monitor and work closely
- Low Leverage + Only You
- Use it as an opportunity to coach teammate
- Set a foundation and the coach, not vice versa
- Low Leverage + Others
- Delegate and be available when then need
This provides a great chance to empower team members, and help them grow.
