The One Minute Manager

Just read “The One Minute Manager” by Ken Blanchard & Spencer Johnson. The book is a must read and has already begun to help me in my business and in my personal life. Everything comes down to thinking about the other person, but not spending too much time managing them. Instead of “watching” them all day, you’re supposed to let them set their own course and fulfill it on their own. If they make a horrific mistake you must give them a one minute talk letting them know that what they did was wrong, but the idea should be that “this isn’t them and isn’t usual of them”. I loved the book and would recommend it to all entrepreneurs who want to improve the way that they “manage” those around them for the better.
