The book follows a young manager who seeks guidance from a seasoned mentor to improve his management style and achieve better results with his team. Through a series of conversations and lessons, the mentor introduces the principles of the “new” one-minute management technique, which focuses on three key areas: One Minute Goals, One Minute Praisings, and One Minute Re-Directs.

Firstly, One Minute Goals emphasizes the importance of setting clear, concise, and achievable goals that can be communicated in just a minute. By ensuring that everyone understands what is expected of them, managers can empower their team members to take ownership of their work and strive towards success.

Secondly, One Minute Praisings highlights the significance of providing timely and specific feedback to recognize and reinforce positive behavior. By acknowledging and celebrating small wins, managers can boost morale, motivation, and performance within the team.

Lastly, One Minute Re-Directs focuses on addressing mistakes or areas for improvement promptly and constructively. Instead of dwelling on the problem, managers are encouraged to offer guidance, support, and solutions to help team members learn from their errors and grow professionally.

Blanchard’s “The New One Minute Manager” offers practical insights and actionable strategies that can be applied by leaders at all levels to enhance their effectiveness, build strong relationships, and drive organizational success in today’s dynamic business environment. With its simple yet powerful principles, this book continues to be a valuable resource for anyone looking to excel in the art of management.
