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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As usual this was an extremely simple but tremendously effective. I listened to an audiobook at a 2X speed and every second on the 30 minutes was worth it.

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.

Builds off the first book talking less about the principles of "One Minute Managing" and talks more about how to apply them.

Great book that I would recommend re-visiting often/as-needed.
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
