Publisher's 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.

Very cheesy and annoying

If you're looking for something "inspirational" then this isn't it. It's very American and patronising in places.

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.

A few core philosophies, but the one that stood out to me the most!

Nice refresh for this classic

Although they still refer to the process as management, they have really gotten into one minute leadership. Replacing reprimands with redirections is very beneficial, and much more in tune with helping people learn and grow as they raise their performance. When the original version was written, the psychology of the day was aimed at behavior modification. Now it's more aptly aimed at building a collaborative relationship between leaders and their people, with the end goal of turning everyone into a leader, or at least a self-leader.

Valuable lessons in cheesy packaging.

The principles of this book are valuable, and the briefness of the information makes it effective and usable - a handy approach for anyone to consider applying anywhere in their life. For me it would have packed a little more punch if the packaging story wasn't so overly whimsical (i.e. "Who is that magic man everyone adores in the corner office, what a legend, everyone sees his genius!") but it does the trick nonetheless.

Incredibly short, with little information

Everything in this book could be expressed in a single paragraph.

The style is patronising and padded out. Spend your credits on better.
