Three rules of management:
- Do nothing
- Delegate everything
- Let nothing be done without checking it
The third rule is the hardest to learn and apply
Underlings need attention, direction
Direction = set clear goals together, Attention = appraisals when things are done right, Limits = reprimand when things are done wrong. Praise or reprimand directly, don't wait too long.
The rest of the litterature is pretty much expanding on this.
