Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick Read - Makes a Good Point This book is a very easy read. It is written as the story of a young man who goes in search of the best management style for him to emulate as his career progresses. On his quest, he finds an extremely successful manager. He delves into why the manager has done so well for himself, and finds that there are 3 critical components to leading a team: setting specific goals, providing positive feedback and providing constructive criticism. All three of these can be done in one-minute. These leadership components resonated well with my own personal experience. That said, I think there are others that I would add to the list as well (doesn’t working hard yourself belong there somewhere?).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is reality! 1 minute goal, 1 minute praising, and 1 minute reprimand can help you not only on your career but also in your personal life. This is a short book and very easy to read. The main idea is knowing what your outcome, catching people doing things right, catching people doing things wrong. Simple but convincing. At the end of the book, it does explain why these things work and why people function these way. Pleasure reading in 2 hours. Very helpful and practical!
