Being in the Details

Charles Eames

You cannot delegate understanding.

Brian Chesky’s Interview with Lenny (Paraphrased): Leaders need to dive into the details. This means fully understanding what your team is working on, including processes, challenges, and progress. This comprehensive insight enables you to make informed decisions, offer meaningful guidance, and trust your team to execute. Without this understanding, you can’t accurately assess their performance.

Jason Fried of Basecamp shares a similar philosophy. At Basecamp, they personally perform tasks of a new role before hiring someone. This approach helps grasp the job’s details and nuances, ensuring they understand what success looks like.
