    Key Points

    Your sense of ownership in your work can have huge consequences in how well things unfold.
    Self-efficacy has a large effect on your sense of ownership in your work.
    Try to connect the job someone is doing with the overall mission of the organization.
    The effects of micromanaging can be disastrous for an organization.
    When delegating a job, think about the critical components of the job and what you want the result to be, then let employees get the job done however they see fit.
    Delegation doesn’t have to be an all-in-one-shot type of thing, it can be done in stages.

    Steps to delegating:

    Watch me do this
    Help me do this
    Let’s do this together
    I’ll help you do this
    I’ll watch you do this.
