There’s two types of delegation in leadership:
1. Ego based delegation – centered around the principle that you’re “too good” or that a specific task is “below you”
2. Humility based delegation – centered around the principle that you’re not very good, and that others are better
Most people delegate because they think something is beneath them. The best form of delegation is recognizing there are tons of people who are way better at lots of things, and that it’s your duty and in your favor and to delegate the things other people can do better.
The key to delegation is: “Only do, what only you can do”.
