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.
