#TopTip: Delegate tasks effectively by matching tasks with skills

Delegating tasks can be challenging, but maximising your team’s productivity is essential. Match tasks with skills by assigning responsibilities to team members based on their strengths, interests, and experience. This will not only increase their motivation but also improve the quality of work.
Actionable tip: List your team members’ strengths and activities that energise them and match them with tasks on your to-do list.

Amazing App: Alexa

The reason I’m recommending the Alexa app today is it has dramatically improved the quality of my sleep.I’ve created a bedtime routine that when I say, “Alexa, goodnight.” the bedroom lights are switched off and it plays the sound of waves crashing against the shore. I’m asleep within minutes and have a much better quality nights sleep than if I don’t use it.Give it a try and set up a bedtime routine with your favourite ‘sleep sound’.

‘Til next week, keep putting your best foot forward and never stop striving for greatness. Leadership is a marathon, not a sprint, so pace yourself and keep pushing forward. You know you can do it!

Gemma 💜
