Blanchard doesn't give us real cases where his quadrant of methods worked, he gives us the almost hyperbolically successful, nameless Entrepreneur, who by the end of the book is a CEO overseeing multiple companies.

Crucial in this model are : together setting clear targets and having clear agreements on form and the level of guidance.

The One Minute Manager is a short book by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. The brief volume tells a story, recounting three techniques and of an effective manager: one-minute goals, one-minute praisings and one-minute reprimands. Each of these takes only a minute but is purportedly of lasting benefit. It was followed by a sequel, Leadership and the One Minute Manager, by Ken Blanchard, Patricia Zigarmi and Drea Zigarmi, which laid out Blanchard's Situational Leadership II concept.

As a performer, manager or leader we all must have have basic skills. Situational leadership has stood the test of time (Hersey and Blanchard). Situations vary by the degree of people versus task emphasis required. Don't let the classic 2x2 consultant's grid of lo-lo, hi-hi, hi-lo and lo-hi turn you off. This time its a helpful tool. In addition to the obvious notion that some people respond better to direct versus indirect management styles, Situational Leadership also lays out a developmental model that guides the best use of people and task emphasis.

For any new task, be hands-on and directive. Once someone has the basics, keep monitoring the performance in detail, but add some emotional support. Once they have mastered the area, back away on the details and provide some empathy. If they don't relish the interpersonal stuff, back away to low support and low direction.

The book is about 100 pages. Quick reading. Adequate depth. Enough examples and repetition to get the points across. A good book for a quick 2-3 hour training session. However, as with most "managing" books, the key is to apply the principles and develop new habits. Good luck.

This entry in Ken Blanchard's One Minute Manager Library uses the narrative style that has for better or worse become standard in business literature to teach `situational leadership' in terms of flexibility, diagnosis, and partnering.

Blanchard's style tends toward the simple rather than the complicated side of the leadership menu and so his popular books are short and broken into bite-sized chapters, usually based upon one of his trademark sayings.

The `situational' in `situational leadership' means that Blanchard wants to coach a leader who can vary his style based upon the situation he encounters. The idea is not to produce an automaton of managerial efficiency, but rather a human being who is wise. This latter aspect of his program may have increased in recent years. The book under review dates from 1985, but wisdom under other names is already a desirable feature, even if it emerges at this early date more as a technical ability than a character virtue.

I find this little entry to be a refreshing reminder to step back and understand the human being whom one is `managing' when much of my leadership reading focuses--properly, I think--on the person of the leader. Blanchard reminds us between the lines of Leadership and the One Minute Manager that we manage human beings and that we do so for some reason larger than ourselves. Their competence and attitude vary from week to week and from task and so, therefore, should our managerial interaction with them.

That alone is worth the read.

I like the one minute manager book for situational management, and being a team lead, I found this book to build on those already effective techniques.

It's also a good book for people who are reluctant to lead, when read in combination with the original OMM. It's short and sweet and presented in narrative form, so it's easy to digest.
