What you say when you delegate authority and want to stay involved
Two partners at a big law firm are on the phone in an episode of the CBS classic “The Good Wife.” One partner is heavily involved in another project and can’t get free to hear all that’s involved in discussions with a prospect.
“I might be able to sign them,” one partner says to another partner. “I can decide for both of us?”
“Yes. Just keep me in the loop.”
This is an efficient, courteous, business-like way to proceed. You need to delegate but you don’t want to be blindsided later.
So… you must make it your business to be kept informed. “Keep me in the loop” is a valuable power phrase to help make that happen.
