The Exclusion Paradox
Teams provide the benefit of sharing burdens or workloads in a way which cannot be found elsewhere. I have observed many teammates who chose not to take advantage of this benefit. I often reflect on the moments when I hesitated to delegate. I love being on a team and I love to be needed. It’s selfish and myopic but sometimes I hold onto things because I simply want to be included. By fearing my exclusion, I may be excluding those who should be included.
