Notes from Leadership Jazz

One of my favorite books on leadership is Leadership Jazz by Max DePree.
Max was chairman of the board of Herman Miller for many years.
Leadership Jazz is primarily a set of personal stories about leadership.
I first read the book about 10 years ago and have found that rereading
it as well as a set of notes that I took one time has really been
helpful.
 
For this weeks reading, I am sending you my notes the book's chapter
on delegation.

In the February 23rd and the March 16th issues of the Point Lookout

email newsletter, Rich Brenner and the staff at Chaco Canyon Consulting

<http://www.ChacoCanyon.com> present two helpful pieces on "Recovering

Time."  Given that all of us scramble to find more time for our work,

I thought that I would share their ideas with you.
