Wise Team

It’s one thing to delegate “no brainer” menial tasks. That kind of delegation might free up some time for the leader, but that doesn’t scale the authority structure of the team. Eventually the leader will run out of menial tasks to delegate and their effectiveness will hit a lid. The leader lid is removed when teammate’s that are wise enough to be trusted learn and take on difficult decisions from the leader to share the authority of the team. There is a difference between delegating tasks and delegating decisions. Is there anyone on the team that is wise enough to entrust decisions to? If not, the leader’s first problem is recruiting.
