Our thoughts on this book

A quick read about how to manage people effectively. Told from different employee perspectives, it felt a bit contrived with a Goldilocks and the Three Bears type of vibe. It did, however, open my eyes to different tactics of management, some I have already tried using.

One Minute Manager is a good quick read, recounting 3 techniques of an effective manager: One-minute goals, one-minute praisings, and one-minute reprimands. The book simplifies managing and saves you and your team time. It helped me realize that, with efficiency, managing doesn’t need to be as time consuming as it sometimes is.
