Empower: Responsibility

Putting a name on a task is important. If it’s everyone’s job, it’s no ones job. Great teams understand that putting a name on every task gives ownership to those who are responsible for the task. If a teammate is being asked to put their name on it, you can bet that person will represent themself well on that task. Empowering a teammate with a specific responsibility or task also makes it clear to the entire team who the “go to” person is for that portion of the project. When people know what tasks have their name on them, they also know what tasks don’t and that grants freedom from potential distractions.
