I still see this and I'm out to change this with anyone who will partner with me as their coach to help them get to the "Should" stage. In fact, I've been on a personal journey the past few years to push my life into the "Should" zone as much as possible.
This knowledge that I picked up a few years ago bothered me. It bothered me to the core and still does. One of my core strengths is called “Maximizer”. The essence of this strength means that it is in my DNA to push “Good” to “Great”. I’ve always had a drive to innovate and to make things better and now I know why!
It's easy for my client to delegate to his team because he has invested time and energy to determine precisely how each of his teammates are wired. He feeds each member of his team specific responsibilities knowing that what he is feeding them aligns with their strengths. People love to not just be empowered but to be empowered to do things they can excel at delivering.
