Scott Stein's book is with me, I was guided to pull it out and point directly to the authorization chapter. Scott has a very simple model that explains the three main modes of authorization: Tell, Show, Ask. Everyone has a specific application and context. For example, the Tell mode is most useful in the following situations:
* Your time is tight, and the person you are talking about already knows how to do what needs to be done.
* When you have an individual or group that may be the most motivated and inspired by the story.
* When you are communicating a series of instructions that need to be followed, a disaster will occur.

Identify activities that can be delegated to others on the team so that you can be more strategic at work. Then create a transition plan.
