Being challenged is a key part of growing in your role, and asking the right questions is also part of this process.
This is especially true when you are trying to solve a problem and finding ways to solve an issue proactively. The intent as a leader should always be; to teach people how to fish, not fish for them.
Your team is always looking for more responsibility and recognition.
