"The Professor" Pritch Pritchard breaks down all the benefits of delegation, a true sign of leadership. For this podcast, we define Delegation as: "Dividing up responsibilities in order to be most efficient in the chain of command. Giving control, authority and responsibility to another person as an opportunity to provide value." Delegating, when done correctly, is a whole lot more than just telling people what to do. A quite example of leadership.
