A book worth your time and money...! In the age of information overload, ignorance is a choice. When most people become a manager for the first time, they are more than a little unsure of themselves. Naturally, they often use speech and ways of doing things that they have seen others use. That's great if their role models are good, but can be terrible otherwise. The One Minute Manager provides a positive role model for those who have not yet seen one, and good reinforcement for those who have not seen one lately. If organizations try to operate on the assumption that only the manager has ideas worth acting on, then very little will be accomplished. The One Minute Manager provides a useful model for opening up and stimulating the minds of everyone in the organization to accomplish more. Not only is this advice worth following from an effectiveness point of view, it will also make you feel better about yourself as a manager and as a person when you follow it. And you will certainly make those who report to you feel a lot better, as well. I like the use of a parable to help each of us reexamine ourselves, because it makes the reader feel less defensive. But be sure to remember what you gut instincts would have been in the same situations the One Minute Manager describes. Otherwise, you may miss the point of how much your behavior needs to change. --Valliappan Pet... on 07 Nov 2013
This book needs no introduction. Long before there were these large bible-like must do/don't of management, there was this slim 100 page book. It sets the tone for the best approach that you should have as a manager. I gift this book to my associates who take up the People Manager(mentor) role at our company. It's simple yet powerful, concise & unbelievably effective. If you have never read any management book, i highly recommend this be your first book on management!! --Naimesh Kundanani on 06 Mar 2013
One of the toughest things in today s fast moving world is "Simplicity". A lot of us find it difficult to simply things and end up complicating it further. The beauty of one minute manager is its "Simple" A very small and simple book that highlights key areas that managers typically struggle. Wonderful book and must read for all leaders and managers. --Harish Hegde on 09 Nov 2012 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
