Authority and Training

When someone leaves a position of authority, it is important to transition that authority to a new person so that everyone involved knows who is now responsible. Just as important is training the person with the new responsibility to handle that authority well. Authority that is given without additional training is like handing a drivers license to a 16 year old without any time behind the wheel. Sure…they can figure it out, but it’s risky.
