Delegating and empowering my colleagues was never my strong side. I used to think I had to do it all, and not “dump” my work on someone else.
But after a while I realised, that it was not so smart.
Not only because I ended up doing everything myself, and almost burned myself out, but also because I deprived my team members of the opportunity to learn and develop.
When we empower others to execute, we do them a favour, not a disservice.
I realised it is a mindset, and it starts with me.
Today, I am happy to take a step back because I know I do my people a service.
