This is the first book in the One-Minute Manager series that is part of Blanchard’s model of Situational Leadership. This original volume has sold more than 13 million copies, been translated into 25 different languages, and continues to sell over 10,000 copies per month. This is the base of most of Blanchard’s works, all of which express Empowering Leadership model.
Each book in the One-Minute Manager series is conveyed in his signature format of a fictional story of leaders/managers in action. The main principle is that helping people feel good about themselves is the key to getting things done, and that with careful planning, it is possible to bring out the best in people without taking much time. It involves three “secrets.”
