Many leaders feel that they need to be the one to make the tough calls. But at Pluralsight, our leadership team knows the value of letting go of certain important decisions, and empowering others in the company to make them.

In this week’s column on, “Why You Should Delegate Your Hardest Decisions,” I share some examples of how our company has benefitted from sharing decision-making power more widely across our teams, resulting in better outcomes and faster growth than would have been possible through solely top-down decision-making. We’ve found out firsthand that when our teams tackle difficult decisions together, the resulting decisions are even better than our leadership group would have made had we attempted to go it alone.The post reveals how delegation of the toughest initiatives can foster trust and empowerment, facilitate true autonomy, and create a no-fear culture—all necessary precursors to continuous innovation, improvements, and breakthroughs in any type of organization.
