After 20 years in business I finally got it. And it came from this book. When I first became a supervisor my company provided me with a course in 'monkey management'. I thought I understood it and my roll in it but I was only on the receiving end of the monkeys.
This book not only taught me how to be a professional manager, but also explained how to make my subordinates and myself 'professional managees'. That's whats not taught in so many management courses and seminars.
Don't think because this book is out of print that it's no longer relevant. I've been to seminars with Ken Blanchard, Tom Peters, et al. Oncken had them cold a long time ago.
One of the others is that it is your responsibility to manage to operate at your own highest level of freedom and never simply Ask what to do or wait to be told what to do.
In the course Oncken provides so much more than the intro materials suggest. He did a good job and I don't know if anyone else can provide the same enthusiasm and texture.

Delegation, management, time management, it's all there. It's getting old now, but still worth the read - especially for those new to management.Published on December 27, 2013 by Brett L Bridger
