EPISODE 204: DELEGATION & THE CULTURE OF MARTYRDOM
Learning to share the load (both at work and at home!) is maybe the hardest part of being an adult. In this episode, Ally and Kara explore how our inability to delegate relates to our ridiculous self-imposed mission to complete everything ourselves. This leads to a textbook case of martyrdom, which in turn creates a troubling Culture of Martyrdom in our work and home lives. Follow along as Ally and Kara detail their struggles and provide suggestions on how to break out of this exhausting way of thinking and working!

Trust & Delegation
“Trust is choosing to risk making something you value vulnerable to another person’s actions.”
“Distrust is: what’s important to me is not safe with this person in this situation.”
- Charles Feltman, The Thin Book of Trust
(Recently featured on Brene Brown's Dare to Lead podcast!)
More from Brene - she has a great guide on how to build trust with others, which in turn will help you learn to delegate to them.
