Delegate Until You Can't No More

According to Lauren Landry, on behalf of the Harvard Business School, delegation in management refers to "the transfer of responsibility for specific tasks from one person to another."

By assigning manageable yet challenging tasks to individuals within their team, managers can use delegation as a tool to free up time to focus on high-value activities while providing employees with learning and growth opportunities.

For example, Slack creates buy-in and ownership within their teams by having managers delegate responsibility until they feel like they can't anymore (i.e. it feels uncomfortable or things stop getting done).
