The above quote is an African proverb which is particularly applicable when you are managing a team.
Sometimes when we have multiple tasks, deadlines and commitments it can seem quicker if we just do it ourselves. What happens is we end up doing it all and getting burnt out.
Take the time to see where you can share, collaborate, discuss, problem solve with the team. This way you end up with an engaged, competent team, better outcomes and a sustainable working relationship.
