Summary

Point. Click. Done! What a world this would be if everything worked as easily and efficiently as your TV set's remote control.
Today's managers could definitely use such convenience in their day-to-day dealings. Many of them face far too many responsibilities for one person. Traditional "empowerment," allowing support staff to take on some of the overload, often produced less-than-desirable results. Even so, some form of empowerment has become an absolute necessity for maxed-out managers.
If you suffer from nagging, stressful management overload... Managing by Remote Control now brings you relief! Peter R. Garber, a manager of teamwork development, offers new concepts and techniques to make empowerment practical. He tells why and how past methods failed-and replaces those with more effective measures. Eventually, your capable support staff will make decisions, and solve problems as if a manager were always present and calling the shots.
By comparing his techniques and philosophies to the functions of a TV set's remote control, Garber takes an entertaining and humorous approach to the subject. Even those who would rather watch TV than read a business book will find Managing by Remote Control entertaining-and informative. Don't wait for rerun season-read it soon!
