Delegate vs defer

To delegate is to say: you do this task.

To defer is to say: I trust you to make this decision.

Sometimes you need to delegate. But if you always delegate without deferring, you’ll won’t develop the people around you.

Over-relying on delegating demonstrates a belief in your way, not in a belief to your people. Sometimes it’s the way to get more done quickly. Be cautious if it’s your only way.
