One of the first books I read when I started down the path of becoming a Leadership Performance Coach was the One Minute Manager. Are you familiar with the book ? Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have been two of my all time favorite thought leaders over the past 20 years
In fact, I think it was one of the first books I read that changed my belief about how a leader should and could show up. I started to understand that it was OK to bring the relationship part of who we are into the workplace. Before that my belief was as a leader you had to be hard, not show emotions and focus totally on the bottom line.
The message in the book must have resonated with a lot of others because it has sold more than 13 million copies and has been translated into 37 languages.
The book talks abut three techniques of an effective manager: one-minute goals, one-minute praisings and one-minute reprimands. Each of these takes only a minute and has a more positive impact and lasting benefit. Good stuff.
With all the change around leadership style and business over the last 20 years I am excited that on May 5th there is a new copy of the One Minute Manager book coming out.
I sure will be reading it, how about you?
