Summary

With a new foreword by Ken Blanchard.

The original, best-selling blockbuster which has transformed businesses worldwide.

The blockbuster number-one international best-selling phenomenon is back...not that it ever really went away.

This easily read story quickly demonstrates three very practical management techniques: One Minute Goals, One Minute Praisings, and One Minute Reprimands.

The One Minute Manager also includes information on several studies in medicine and in the behavioural sciences, which help readers understand why these apparently simple methods work so well with so many people.

The book is brief, the language is simple, and best of all...it works.

Was a bit fast and feel like the book will better

All I understand was that you should praise people when they do good and if they do bad then do a rebound or something. And try and get people to solve their own problems. Feel like these 1 hour books are a rip off.

Awful

Couldn't listen to this book. The narration compared to a children's book. Condescending content. Granted it's dated so I suppose one must allow for that.

I wish every manager to use the described rules!<br />

Amazing,
I always felt this this managing style is possible, I just didn't know that someone described it in the book.
I wish every manager to use the rules in this book to create successful people how to run successful company.
if every manager reads Facebook, life at work would be so much easier.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wish to manage people and to recommend it to the ones who manage people already!

Clarity in leading from the front

truly inspiring guide on how best to lead and manage staff/employees through giving them full autonomy in their development.

I've now started to implement these methods to help develop leaders within my organisation. At the same time I've recommended this book be read by all my employees to provide them a better understanding on the processes with the view that they too can some day become leaders.

Great for first time managers

Having recently being given a team to manage but not given any management training I was looking for resources to help me but wanted simple and concise guidance which is exactly what this books gives. I highly recommend and am looking forward to implementing in my life.
