A city leader recently told me, "I don’t like to delegate because my team isn’t as skilled in the work as I am and they can’t do the task as well as me. Maybe I’m a perfectionist."
He went on to say that he went to training to learn the basics of delegation and the best practices yet he doesn't want to delegate and receive the benefits of doing so. He's stuck as a leader….he's not learning and growing.
His training was great but he's not adopting the ideas he learned.
Learning cohorts are one element you can add to your training to become a city or county that builds a learning culture. Cohorts are assigned groups of 4-5 people who meet on a regular basis to journey through a training concept together. Cohorts enable action, questions and adoption of ideas.
Cohorts are about honesty, accountability and vulnerability….they’re about learning and growing...
