The Wizard of Oz.

I love to bush-whack down the obstacles at work so that when it’s time to delegate a task, I’m clear about how long it will take and the snags entailed in completing it. 

Last week I delegated a task and got the following pushback:

“I can’t possibly help on such a huge task right now.” 

Because I had done this same task in the past, I understood it was a quick tweak, not anything that needed more than 5 minutes.

I lost lots of trust during that interaction.

Yes, sometimes things will be demanding and require time, skill, and even sorcery.

Now that it’s a cinch to learn things on YouTube or Google some instructions, you can quickly lose credibility by pretending to be the Wizard of Oz.
