Consider using your vacation for strategic purposes in your organization. Carefully think about who will do which pieces of your job while you are away. Use this time to delegate the duties that you want to flush from your orbit forever. Give away the full responsibility to make the decisions inside the responsibilities given.
Pause and Reflect:
- What specific things will you delegate when you leave for vacation that you have no intention of taking back?
- How will you communicate upon your return, that you have increased faith in your coworker’s ability to perform at this higher level?
