It's a parable of a young professional looking for good managers to try to learn the secrets to good management. He finds the "One Minute Manager" who, with the help of his subordinates (themselves becoming One Minute Managers), reveal the secrets to One Minute Management.
Basically: * Have employees set explicit goals that are terse, understandable and agreed-upon by both manager and managee * Give praise immediately when managee does something well; include how it makes you feel * Give praise immediately when an experienced managee makes a mistake they had the skills to avoid making; include how it makes you feel * Make sure your employees are always growing confidence, know where they stand, and take charge of their responsibilities
