The One Minute Manager

I read “The one Minute Manager” By Kenneth H. Blanchard and Spencer Johnson on the recommendation of a friend. I found the book interesting and straight forward in its approach. If you are looking for a book that provides a fundamental model for managing people this book could be of assistance. I found the method used to describe a one minute manager interesting and easy to read. The only flaw in the book is that it leaves a gap around leadership. It provides context for managing people but it does not lay out a context for leading people. I would recommend this book it should be in every manager’s library.

One thought on “The One Minute Manager”

  1. The book missing things on Leadership is a very good point, but wasn’t really the concept that was trying to be expressed in the book.

    However, there is a book called “Leadership and the One Minute Manager” that addresses some of these issues.

    I haven’t read it yet, but I will be soon. The book can be found here:

    I’ll let you borrow it when I finish it.
