Delegation is critical to any career, but how do you determine when you should? How can you view tasks to get the most leverage out of your team, and if you don’t have a team, how could you get one?

Heather Mason, Founder of CEO-U, the Caspian Agency, and the SUREFIRE conference, is here to answer your questions LIVE and virtually! We'll discuss how we can create a logical route to help you leverage delegation, while also setting you up for success if you need to argue for headcount. We’ll also discuss any barriers or fears that might be holding you back from trusting your team, and in the end, help you discover your own personal "awesome’’.

You asked, she's answering:

  • I'm a new manager, what are your top tips for delegating work?
  • How do you get over the fear of losing your job if you delegate?
  • What tips do you have for female leaders at the c-level?
  • & More!
