Get Out Of the Way
Once you delegate, leave.
There is a natural instinct to help someone when you ask them to do something.
“Hey, when I did it before, all I had to do was…”
Resist this urge:
- Your actions block the other person’s creativity by framing them in a particular thought pattern
- You teach them not to think because you have the answers
- And you take away agency because they are just “following orders.”
