Good, especially the delegation part. I Liked the stmt about how managers
become antimanagers by doing micromgmt. Reproduced below ,
“This is the opposite of management: it’s anti-management. Instead of 5 people working at full speed, you have 5 people limited by the manager’s speed in checking and re-checking every single tiny decision they make.”
