The book is written for managers who have to supervise and control their employees as well as complete certain essential office tasks. It covers certain techniques that could help its readers in improving their productivity, job satisfaction, and personal prosperity. This is because individual satisfaction can gradually lead to the growth of any organization.

The authors of the book, Kenneth Hartley Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have briefly explained few methods of management that are based on few studies in medicine and behavioral sciences. The book talks about three practical management techniques such as one-minute goal setting, one minute praising and one minute reprimand. These three simple yet effective techniques could do wonders for both individual and organizational growth.

The one-minute goal setting technique says that each member of a team is essential to fulfill the set goals. For instance, in order to complete daily, weekly, monthly or yearly tasks, team effort is needed, and for that, individual effort matters a lot.

One minute praising technique is all about appreciation. According to this technique, a manager must reward a team member for completing a specific task efficiently. Plus, a manager could spend a minute to acknowledge a hardworking employee.

The last technique is a one-minute reprimand that says that the manager has to give feedback to a few members who committed mistakes in their tasks. But the feedback must be given in a polite manner so that their interpersonal relations are not affected.

By following these three effective techniques, a manager may grow individually as well as lead to organizational growth in the long term. Written in simple, easy-to-understand language, the book can help the readers understand how simple changes can actually work in real management situations.
