As a business leader, you have the tendency to collect accountabilities. If it’s unclear who’s in charge of anything, it defaults to you as the leader. Over time, as your business grows and scales, that’s a lot of little accountabilities for one person to have. Often, it becomes impossible for one person to keep all of those little accountabilities in mind all the time. What you have to do to really be able to grow as a business is recognize those little accountabilities and assign them to someone.
