Excerpt from the interview:

"I've struggled with delegating effectively in the past. It's easy for managers at all levels to take on more work than they need to.

The toughest thing about delegating is that you’re often better at doing a task. Usually, you get promoted for a reason. You know the context, you have the information, and you've probably been a great individual contributor.

You might be the best person for a task, but that doesn't mean you should do it. If there's an opportunity to put a task on a team member, think critically about delegating it to them."
