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 and limits
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.

The Wright Bothers weren't the first to fly. They were just the first not to crash.
