Report Story

Delegating is a task leaders must know how to do in an effective manner.

There is an old saying, “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it.” This is because busy people know how to get things done. They don’t have time to waste on tasks they can delegate to someone else. If your business succeeds, you need to learn how and when to delegate. This blog post will discuss the why, how, and when of delegation training.

Why Delegate?

The main reason to delegate is to free up your time so that you can focus on more critical tasks. When you delegate, you tell someone else you trust to handle a specific task or responsibility. This can be a big responsibility, but it can also be small. Either way, delegation shows that you have faith in the other person’s ability to do the job.

How to Delegate?

When you delegate, you must give clear instructions on what needs to be done. Be specific about what you want the other person to do and how you want it done. It is also essential to set a deadline for completing the task. If possible, provide resources that the other person can use to complete the job. Additionally, checking in with the person you delegated to see how they are progressing and if they need any assistance is helpful.

When to Delegate?

It would help if you delegated when you have more work than you can handle independently. It would be best if you also delegate when you are not the best person to complete a specific task. For example, if you are not good at accounting, you should delegate that task to someone who is. Also, if an assignment is not time-sensitive, you can delegate it to someone who has more free time. Another good time to delegate is when you feel overwhelmed by your workload.

Delegation can be a great way to get things done and free up your time. However, it is essential to know when and how to delegate. If you do not delegate correctly, it can lead to more work for you and frustration for the person doing the task. When in doubt, always ask a professional for help. They will be able to give you the best advice on when and how to delegate.


In 2015, Cameron Forni pioneered the first vape cartridge free of silica fiberglass. From his creation, Select, the best-selling cannabis brand on the West Coast, was born. Five years later, Cameron has become a power player in cannabis and has been recognized by some of the industry’s most reputable publications, such as High Times Magazine, Inc. Magazine and Marijuana Venture Magazine.

Considering himself an entrepreneur by trade and blood, Cameron has always had a hand in building companies. His first venture was selling flowers on the side of the road as a child. As a high school student, he made money by managing a car detailing business. While working towards his degree in Business Administration from the University of Oregon, he built an event company. The ability to solve problems that no one has ever experienced is an entrepreneur’s cross to bear, but Cameron Forni always reveled in the challenge.

When he graduated from college, he set out to create jobs rather than take one. Cameron’s first official foray into entrepreneurship came when he co-founded TextNoMore, an app that rewarded drivers who avoided texting while driving. Then, he co-founded TryEco LLC, which produced a patented, starch-based, and biodegradable, super absorbent polymer used in agriculture. To Cameron, his business focus has always revolved around a mission to build companies and products that would offer people a better life and achieve more. Eventually, that mission led him to cannabis.

After creating what is now the industry standard vape cartridge, Cameron Forni launched Select Oil and, later Cura Cannabis Solutions. His companies saw record-breaking success in the industry. Select’s products are sold in over 900 retailers, and Select Oil is the #1 selling brand in the country. In 2019, Cameron continued setting records, leading his companies in a billion-dollar acquisition by Curaleaf, essentially creating the largest legal cannabis company by revenue.
