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.”

The best thing to do once you are clear about your ask and clear an LZ is just to get out-of-the-way.
