Leadership and the One Minute Manager: Increasing Effectiveness Through Situational Leadership by Kenneth H. Blanchard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
More lessons from the One Minute Manager (a fictional character invented by these authors to teach the rest of us how to be good managers and leaders.) Here, Blanchard and his coauthors apply the key techniques of the One Minute Manager (one-minute goal setting, one-minute praisings, and one-minute reprimands) to the task of leadership and expand on the concept to describe the various circumstances requiring different kinds of responses from leaders and managers. As always, the book is easy to read and follow, with lessons delivered in quick bites. Those who learn visually will especially appreciate the various diagrams and schematic representations of the key concepts. I liked this one and will no doubt mention it often to colleagues and clients. Click here to download a short summary of this one, together with a summary of the original One Minute Manager.
