Treat each of your directs individualy.
The main problem with delegation is that you haven't five direct reports. You have five people reporting to you. Five different people. Not average direct reports but different people. Some may require micromanaging (and in the longterm it is not a good approach) and some can manage their areas of responsibility better than you without any supervision (and in the long term it is a perfect situation).
