There are a few books that I consider standard operating policy for my company.
When it comes to management style “One Minute Manager” is the only book you need.
The days of driving employees to perform have long gone. Today only motivation and leadership works. I think Mark Twain said something about “things need to be as simple as possible, but not too simple”. This book has three simple principals that are proven methods.
We should treat our employees how we would like to be treated.
You can read this simple book in less than a day. It is written in a story telling format that is entertaining. You should read this book, practice the principals and give a copy to your managers.
Author, Kenneth Blanchard, Ph.D, has sold more than nine million copies of this book.
