The one minute manager.

The One Minute Manager

Kenneth Blanchard and Spencer Johnson in "The One Minute Manager' (New York, Williams Morrow, 1982) advise us to "catch someone doing something right.' This little book, cast as a fable, is full or such positive-minded, common-sense statements. It tells of a young man in search of good management. He is introduced by one-minute goal setting, one-minute reprimands, and praising during his quest.

There's nothing new here, but the traditional wisdom deserves reinforcement, not only for managers, but for everyone interested in effective interpersonal communication. It's delightful and easy reading, well worth the time for some useful reminders.
