This book is an excellent frame for strategic planning and execution. From the perspective of a strategist and business coach, I find it interesting because More Than a Minute follows so much of what I do in my practice... I could give it to prospects and say "this is what we're going to do". I think the audience is one where they are theoretical about wanting to learn about strategic planning and implement what they learn. There are so many good sections of questions and other tables in the book that you can start using tomorrow... very practical and useful.

More Than A Minute is an excellent tool to support your organization's planning and goal-setting exercises. After reading the book, we purchased a copy for every Manager in our company.

This is not just a sequel to "The One Minute Manager" but compliments it well. One contains foundations and the other contains clarity to those basic foundations with strategies for leaders and managers in todays changing world. Read both!

Giving feedback is often one of the things we avoid because we think it is all about conflict. This book offers some excellent insight into what feedback is really about and more importantly how to do it.

Holly G. Green capably covers basic leadership and management, and stresses the importance of communication, honesty, feedback and goal setting. Her book, while not particularly innovative, will help novice managers set objectives and meet them by working with the people they lead. Green's goal, as former president of The Ken Blanchard Companies, is to expand on the advice Blanchard gave in his classic, One Minute Manager, decades ago - hence, her book's title. Green's counsel on dealing with problematic employees will be particularly useful to beginners. Experienced managers and leaders managers are undoubtedly familiar with this material, even if they aren't updating it or putting it into practice, and that is where getAbstract thinks this back-to-basics, contemporary manual might spur them to action.
