According to Blanchard and Johnson, anyone can be a one minute manager. Their book, The One Minute Manager, has sold millions of copies and has helped managers and small-business owners worldwide to become better leaders.
Sandy recommends this book to her clients because it teaches people to communicate in 250 words or less (thus, about one minute) what they need and how they are going to achieve results. Top producing managers and owners do not have employees coming to them all day with long stories because they teach them to get to the point and also to have a plan of action in mind before they even approach.
This is a powerful book that exemplifies good leadership. Reading the three very practical management techniques set forth in One Minute Manager will make you a better employee or manager. Just try it…you’ll thank us later.
