Publisher's Summary

A revised edition of the timeless business classic - updated to help today's listeners succeed more quickly in a rapidly changing world.

For decades The One Minute Manager has helped millions achieve more successful professional and personal lives. While the principles it lays out are timeless, our world has changed drastically since the book's publication. The exponential rise of technology, global flattening of markets, instant communication, and pressures on corporate workforces to do more with less - including resources, funding, and staff - have all revolutionized the world in which we live and work.

Now Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have updated The One Minute Manger to introduce the book's powerful, important lessons to a new generation. In their concise, easy-to-understand story, they teach listeners three very practical secrets about leading others and explain why these techniques continue to work so well.

As compelling today as it was 30 years ago, this classic parable of a young man looking for an effective manager is more relevant and useful than ever.

    "Actionable tasks!"

    Great way to tell the story of how to manage goals and expectations. Listen to it often.

    "Very useful perspective."

    Sometimes managers get caught up in "do it now" mentality. This is more about a coaching style. And it is very effective.

    "Poor Style"

    I do not like the conversational style of this book. It should be more instructional.

    Story
    "Not a great read"

    All the useful information in this book could have been written on one page. The story elements of the book didn't really add anything and waste the readers time while they are trying to find the one or two useful things in this book.

    "I want to remember this past one minute."

    I personally perform my job better with direction and praise. Applying this in my life is the greatest reward my team and family will benefit from.

    Story
    "Fake Interviews Are Aggravating"

    Decent suggestions, but the format is not setup for actual "one-minute-managers." The concepts are covered in a pointless, indigestible odyssey of John Doe interviewing successful Jane and other John Doe managers assuring the interviewer how great the techniques are. Many wasted words and artifice to bring the concepts to life. Gets old very fast.
