Okay. But not good or great.

Usual run of the mill stuff. Quite boring and updated methods for this 'Brave New World.

Delegation without Coaching

I would skip this one. This is definitely delegating with a heavy hand and not coaching others to really lead.

Awesome work flow system

If you like this one you would like the quick read, “The New Ono Minute Manager” by Ken Blanchard, PHD and Spencer Johnson, MD.

A Simple and Strategic Method for Delegating

There is no way to feel overwhelmed with the information because the contents are clearly structured. I love the fact that it articulates the fears and struggles that managers have in delegating. As I listened to them, I was saying “yes! yes!” It made me feel like I wasn’t alone on this journey of honing my delegation skills. Then the solution was presented with examples of how it works.

I recommend this book without reservation.

captain obvious to the rescue

I made it halfway and it still feels like being in the introduction. I was expecting a lot more depth and less fluff from HBR.

Good snippets

Useful for someone who has never really delegated before, but also some good nuggets to regular delegators to remember and help structure the delegation better to ensure success. Will look to read again to try to embed the ideas more, would be useful in a hard copy to be able to flick back at key points.

Short and sweet

A really good primer and reminder of how to delegate better.

As a knowledge worker, this was super valuable. Even though many of us feel like this stuff is intuitive (some isn’t).
