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.
