Recommends it for: leaders, managers
Good 'how to' book on management.

Some good ideas I gleaned from the book:

"People who produce good results feel good about themselves."

One Minute Praisings: be specific, tell the person exactly what they did right.

When to deliver a One Minute Reprimand vs work on One Minute Goalsetting: when a person is unwilling -- OMR, when a person is unable -- OMG.

ABCs of Management:

A = Activators (What a manager does before performance,ex. OMG)
B = Behavior (Performance: what someone says or does, ex. WT or t

I suspect this book was written as a follow-up to the original book due to implementation issues faced in reality.

Basically, a typical performance management system was added on top of the basic principles of One Minute Management so that it can implemented practically in reality.

Nonetheless, as always with books in this series, it is a quick read and shows how this can be achieved in engaging story-telling format.
If you read the One Minute manager and you need a user's manual, this book can give you what you need, on the other hand you can make a presentation out of it related to the ways used to apply the One minute Manager.
I read this book only because I bought it as a package deal with The One Minute Manager. To summarize my review of The One Minute Manager, I thought the book might be helpful for anyone who has never managed people before, but it was really nothing life-changing for anyone who has managed others.

This book is considerably more useful to the experienced manager. I approached this book with a slightly closed mind; however, I actually plan to implement some of these strategies at my business. Overal

Read this as a follow-up to the 1st book in the series (because my library had both of them) and it was a great extension, laying out the steps for implementation. Love the way both of these books are written as allegories ... so readable.

Great, easy to read story incorporating a ton of the better practical operations and administrative management concepts of the recent past. Building on The One Minute Manager, this book is an invaluable companion to the original, providing you subscribe to the theory or practice of One Minute Management.

This was kind of hokie. There were one or two small aha moments, but nothing to really write home about. The information is still valid, but presented with some very dated attitudes. And, occasionally, I felt like I was reading an after-school special. Especially that whole Hank story.

I'm thankful for this book. Since it adds three new techniques (goal, admiring and blaming ) for one min. It was for me the same technique of my previous boss (god blessing him) for admiring and blaming only.

I still have this book (almost the same dust cover image), but the ISBN is: 0-688-02632-X
The image I have is stored on my flickr account at:
it's good for the people in management, the way of power and responsiblities delegation, the way to collect reports of job completed/ uncompleted are really learnable.
Art Sathoff
Pretty basic, pretty common sense, but I can see how these very common sense ideas are powerful when put into action. Some very good basic management advice here
This is an excellent follow up to the One Minute Manager and real skills that you can put to use right away at work. It's a fast read and well worth the time.
Another excellent book in this series. I highly recommend all of them. I found the examples in this book very good and easy to apply.
Vanessa Williams
This is a great book. I love the whole "One Minute Manger" series. If you are in a manager position, you have to read them.
A brief yet effective book that conveys common sense tips on how to get better results from your employees.
OK...but overly wordy for the subject matter (like most of these types of books)
Very easy reading with a good lesson though it will take more than a minute to learn.
I thought this was a very useful book. It is a quick read and had some helpful tips.

Shouldn't be hard to read, right? So why haven't you? Put it to work for you.
Excellent book filled with techniques for managers to use in the workplace.
A very necessary follow up to the one minute manager
