The new one minute manager, written by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson, is a revision of the co-authors’ The one minute manager, originally published in 1982. Ken Blanchard is considered one of the most influential leadership experts in the world. He has co-authored 60 books and in 2005 was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top two best-selling authors of all time. Spencer Johnson parallels Ken, and he also became a member of Amazon’s list.
The book at the beginning explains how so many managers fall under one of two categories – tough managers and nice managers. With a nice manager employees feel fine, however, organisations suffer. With a tough manager, organisations seem to win but the employees lose. The book says the most effective managers manage themselves and the teams they work with so that both the people and the company profit from their presence. The one minute manager believes that people work best when they feel good about themselves. It’s more about the quality of the work not the quantity of work done. When it comes to decision-making managers should strive to encourage their teams to create solutions on their own.
Anyway, the book is divided into three major parts – one-minute goals, one-minute praisings and one-minute reprimands. As a manager, you should learn and use these techniques in order to create more time to think and to plan more time for work-life balance and give the same to the people you manage showing them you care about them.
When it comes to goals, there are five qualities of giving them.
