Format: Paperback
Some managers don't manage. Instead, they try to do everything themselves. This never works, because most supervisors have too many tasks and too little time. The solution is to learn to delegate, a basic managerial skill, like planning or budgeting, that you can develop. Business experts Richard A. Luecke and Perry McIntosh offer a simple, straightforward five-step plan you can use to delegate job assignments. The authors outline their approach to delegation in clear language backed by numerous helpful examples. Additionally, they detail typical delegation problems and supply practical solutions. This short, basic manual is smartly laid out, easily accessible and immediately practicable. getAbstract recommends it to anyone who manages others and wants to elicit their best work through effective delegation.

The author provides good reasons to delegate as well as common reasons that busy managers give for why they don't delegate. He follows this up with ways to get tasks off your plate that are better delegated to others.
