Do you trust everyone on your team? If not, part of your job is to figure out why. Some common reasons for distrust include:
Confidence you lost when someone mishandled a previous responsibility. To correct that, think about whether your mistrust is justified or whether the individual deserves a chance to shoulder something sizable again.
Comparisons with other team members whom you believe are more capable. You need to put another assignment on his or her plate to address the issue.
Prejudice or insecurity on your part. None of us is immune from these errors. As a leader, part of your job is to confront your own prejudices.
