Overdelegating

There are a few blogs I read regularly.

I use an RSS feed reader, Feedly, to keep track of when they post so I don’t miss when they post something new.

A few of these blogs have multiple contributors. But I read most of these blogs because I want to know what the blog’s author is thinking.

One of those bloggers started “delegating” his blogging to his staff a couple weeks ago.

Bummer. Now instead of reading what he’s thinking about, I’m reading what his staff is thinking about.

I’m sure his staff are all nice people. Nothing against them personally. But frankly, I don’t care what his staff is thinking about.

I’ve stopped following that blog. Too bad.

All the “leadership” books talk about the importance of delegating.

What they forget is that sometimes the whole point is doing something yourself.
