Being in charge of an office move — when you already have to prioritize and protect your time for your regular workload — can feel daunting, but the key is that you don’t have to do it alone. One member of the Thrive Global community figured out a delegation system that made the moving process a lot easier and less stressful. Here’s how you can do the same:
“When the memo goes out about an office move, you already know what’s coming next. As usual, you’re tapped to take the lead on coordinating this huge effort. My advice is to delegate! Assemble your sub-team to co-lead major areas, like timelines, accountability and deliverables. Send follow-up emails to your department letting them know that they should contact the moving team with their questions and concerns. Give yourself a pat on the back for a seamless move, showing leadership and for coaching the next group of point people. Huge moves are a team effort, so don’t bite off more than you can chew.”
