Here is a recommended book -
Derek Rowntree - The Manager's Book of Checklists: Everything You Need to Know, When You Need to Know It (2005), 3rd edition, Pearson Prentice Hall Business, ISBN: 0273707019
The title is self-explanatory. This is 280 page book of commentary and lists which covers Managing your job, Managing operations, Managing finance, Managing people, Managing information, Managing your career.
It has a quote from Charles Handy on the back cover: "Had I not seen it and read it, I would not have believed it was possible to reduce all those fine-sounding theories to such straightforward lists - you are a genius, even if you are doing me out of a job."
I am not sure if it is available in US - I bought mine from Amazon UK.
P.S. I really enjoyed the DISC conversations on the Members Podcast. Clearly my liking of book of checklists confirms that I am a cautious 'C' type, always needing to check out that I have not missed something before taking any major action!
