The New One Minute Manager

Free sample

A revised edition of the timeless business classic—updated to help today’s readers succeed more quickly in a rapidly changing world.

For decades, The One Minute Manager® has helped millions achieve more successful professional and personal lives. While the principles it lays out are timeless, our world has changed drastically since the book’s publication. The exponential rise of technology, global flattening of markets, instant communication, and pressures on corporate workforces to do more with less—including resources, funding, and staff—have all revolutionized the world in which we live and work.

Now, Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have updated The One Minute Manger to introduce the book’s powerful, important lessons to a new generation. In their concise, easy-to-read story, they teach readers three very practical secrets about leading others—and explain why these techniques continue to work so well.

As compelling today as it was thirty years ago, this classic parable of a young man looking for an effective manager is more relevant and useful than ever.

Attempting to better themselves—learn new skills, break bad habits, realize their potential—people read books, attend seminars, take training courses. And companies pitch in too, spending billions of dollars every year on professional development programs aimed at helping their employees become more effective. But in spite of what people sincerely believe are their best efforts, all too often their behavior doesn’t change. The fact that it seems to be so hard to make new learning stick is an endless source of frustration for both individuals and organizations. For years Ken Blanchard has been troubled by the gap between what people know—all the good advice they’ve digested intellectually—and what they actually do. In this new book he and his coauthors, Paul J. Meyer and Dick Ruhe, use the fable format Blanchard made famous to lay out a straightforward method for learning more, learning better, and making sure you actually use what you learn. This engaging story identifies three key reasons people don’t make the leap from knowing to doing and then moves on to the solution. It teaches you how to avoid information overload by learning “less more, not more less.” You’ll find out how to adjust your brain’s filtering system to learn many, many times more than ever before, ignite your creativity and resourcefulness with Green Light Thinking, master what you’ve learned using spaced repetition, and more. At last, an answer to the question, “Why don’t I do what I know I should do?” Read this book and you will!

Empresas de sucesso aliam uma experiência inesquecível ao cliente a um negócio próspero.

Apesar de a Ferguson’s, a loja na qual Kelsey trabalha, certamente não ser conhecida pela excelência no serviço ao cliente, Kelsey acredita que pode fazer uma diferença positiva. Ela aprende rapidamente que a mudança de cultura não é fácil – e que a sua função como funcionária da linha de frente é mais importante do que ela poderia imaginar. No estilo característico de Blanchard, este livro é uma leitura rápida e de entretenimento para todas

as pessoas em todos os níveis organizacionais em cada indústria. Quando aplicadas, suas lições terão um impacto profundo na experiência que você pode proporcionar a seus clientes. Tanto um alto executivo quanto um funcionário que trabalha meio período, cada pessoa pode fazer a diferença, e o serviço ao consumidor é um trabalho de todos.
