In my experience, delegation is like a muscle that needs to be developed.

Looking back, when I first started leading, I really struggled with delegation. There were a couple of reasons for this:

Thankfully, delegation seemed to get easier with time. One of the things that really helped here was creating agreements with the designers who reported up to me around who owned what. Basically, being explicit in writing about the things that I owned as a lead and the things that I expected of each designer who reported to me. After I learned to do this, it made it much easier to delegate tasks in my experience.
