How to be Better at Delegation and Coaching; Tony Atherton; Kogan Page pounds 8.99

An in-depth book that covers coaching as well as delegation. It employs a rather formal approach, which might not appeal to all. Its comprehensive discussion of delegation, though, makes it a good choice for those who have the time and the inclination to go through the subject in detail.

Best of its kind.
