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.

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.

Great for everyone in business

I'm an account manager in the Biotdch field and this was suggested to me by a colleague. I got a lot out of this and look forward to listening to it again. It's short but sweet, and adds a lot of value. Highly recommend.

well written, easy to understand, compelling.

shame about the Audible player being so buggy. going to buy the hardback version and dump Audible before it crashes my phone anymore. thoroughly recommend the book though and will be buying it as gifts for my friends.

It could be much shorter.

The excess of story dilutes the message.
And the phrase
"One minute manager" is used to often so much so that it can become tedious, that being said the message
itself was useful and i feel more
aware of what makes a good manager so for that i am
pleased.

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.

I wish every manager to use the described rules!

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.
