If you want to get up - and then still want to stay above, you have to learn one thing: let go! This simple truth often goes under. This makes it all the more important for Markus Jotzo to draw attention to this in his reading book. An important book that shows how you can make your own career without staying on the road. And at the same time paving the way for others to their careers.

More leisure time and better employee performance

Everyone knows them, the “cramped” managers and superiors, who still work from the Mallorcan beach hotel eMails write because they are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Markus Jotzo dedicated his first-class book “Let Go for Managers” to them.

But control freaks and well-meaning Glucken bosses should also read this "relaxation" guide to make life easier for themselves and their employees. They are rewarded with "real" leisure time compensation and better performance of the entire department.

In the Devil's Circle of Unrest

That's what it's all about: Consciously or unconsciously, many team leaders tear down the entire responsibility and much of the work itself. This has fatal consequences. If the boss is out of the house, projects are down because important decisions can not be made.

In addition, many employees feel demotivated because the results can only be perfect anyway, if they come from themselves.

When strategic planning gets left behind

Conversely, the department head neglects his core tasks: “The more the boss gives the knight, the less time he has to think and plan strategically. Where should the ideas come from, how can the excessive workload be managed? A vicious circle!"

Jotzo gives you the dual solution: you take your employees more into the duty and open up the necessary space for their own decisions. Even if this is initially difficult and brings errors.

The coach pulls others for you

In return, you give your people exactly the support and information they need in everyday life. “You are in the comfortable situation of holding the reins in your hand.

Others pull the carriage for you. But only if you allow that. Ask yourself the question: Do I work in my department or in my department? ”

good TeamManagement needs training

New role distribution, the giving and learning of responsibility takes time. And a good coach. Jotzo is an excellent coach. He tells you how to arrange goals and distribute tasks.

How you run meetings or take back: “Make sure your people know after work what they did each day and what they want to do the next day or week.”


A useful, highly motivating book for bosses who have so far mostly unconsciously kept their people small and now want to grow. And benefit twice as a result: from top-motivated employees and weekends without cell phone and laptop stress.
