In either condition, a lot of people select the path of slightest resistance, that is to generally do the task themselves. Unfortunately, this attitude perpetuates pretty low productivity and chronic burden.

Offer a wishful reward to those who are going to learn and do those assignments to acknowledgeable standards.
