Why NOT To Do It Yourself

One of the greatest challenges of leadership is having the courage to let go. As leaders, we may think we know what others don’t–like we’re the only one who understands the big picture. It’s easy to fall into the trap of “I’ll just do it myself.” That, or we’re tempted to lead through assigning tasks over and over again, instead of letting others learn through the growing pain.
There’s only one way to avoid this trap and still stay on the path towards success for our team and ourselves: Trust. Building trust is a two-way street. Does your team trust you? And, the sometimes more difficult question, do you trust them? How can you build that trust today? What do you need from them? What do you need to let go of? And what do you need to manage within yourself?
