Delegating

Him: 
"I'm disappointed that Eric isn't taking the lead in our weekly staff meetings like I asked him to."
Me: 
"Did you give him the date you wanted him to start?"
Him: 
"No."
Me: 
"Did you lay out what preparing and running the meeting entails?"
Him:
"No."
Me:
"Did you explain to him what's in it for him to do it so it doesn't just feel like more work?"
Him:
"No."
Me:
"So should you be surprised he didn't do it?"
