There is only one you and you cannot possibly do everything. Delegating will take the edge out of the feeling of being hustled.

Give checkpoints for them to act on so that you do not become overbearing. Delegate wisely and you will find that this improves your leadership skills.

This will save time and ease your movements and keep you focused once you get there. You will appear more confident and reduce your chances of being identified as a stranger.
