That's a big mistake. #thread 👇
A) We don't delegate and end up doing things we shouldn't be doing because "my direct report doesn't know enough". We don't realize that we're making them not know enough and adding us more work that we could...
B) We're making it harder for our direct reports to talk to other people directly to get shit done, and in turn, make them always come to us to know who to go to.
One phrase from @cmccarrick that I love is "We're hero fire fighters by day, and arsonists by night".
