Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager: Gain the Mindset and Skillset for Getting What You Need to Succeed Reviews
I have always been a fan of the One Minute Manager books. I enjoy the art of storytelling and visualizing as I hear a story. Susan Fowler and Laurence Hawkin’s new partnership with the book Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager does not disappoint. Sure some leaders are born however, most of us acquire leadership skills through experience and mentoring. Have you ever started a new venture feeling like a superstar only to find that maybe you aren’t such a phenomenal leader? This book is for you.I’ve never given too much thought to self-leadership but this book quickly jumpstarted my mind. We all need self-leadership in order to succeed and make a change. Our lives are ever changing and at one point we may need little more direction or support yet, we may find ourselves not pushing enough to ask for more support and assistance from someone else as circumstances change. The book teaches us valuable lessons in business in a parable featuring Steve, a young advertising executive who feels that he is about to lose his job. He bumps into a friendly magician in a coffee shop who helps Steve realize how he needs to take the power of responsibility for his own situation and stop blaming others. The magician, Cayla, empowers others by coaching from what she has learned from the One Minute Manager. She shares 3 valuable self-leadership lessons that allow Steve to turn his situation around and lessons that we can all use in our own lives.Assumed constraints are a negative and are a belief that will limit your experience and hold you back.Activate your points of power: They include position, knowledge, task, personal, and relationship power.Self-leadership means being proactive to get what you need to succeed: The two most powerful words to get what you need are “I need”.Stories are all about sharing and teaching. Self-Leadership and the One Minute Manager does not disappoint. The book shares valuable lessons but also provides a Development Continuum Model that illustrates the four stages people experience when they are learning to master something, like a new job or life change. The model captures what people experience and helps them to realize their competence and commitment to change as we learn something new or pursue a goal. The book offers visual models of the four stages along with a complete list of competences and commitments to help in understanding how to integrate the model into our lives. The book is a quick read yet offers so much information in an entertaining and empowering way. Steve was empowered by the gifts that Cayla shared with him and not only does he keep his job, but he becomes a One Minute Manager to those around him.
This book, originally published in 2005, introduced a proven path to empowerment in the format of a quick-read parable. In the increasingly fast-paced world of work, this updated edition is more relevant than ever as it gives readers three tricks to managing themselves. We are introduced to Steve, a new advertising account executive. His first ad campaign, for United Bank, is rejected as “garbage” by the bank president. Stunned, and afraid that he will be fired, Steve, instead of driving back to the agency, comes upon Cayla’s Café, in an unfamiliar neighborhood. There he meets the owner, Cayla, doing magic tricks for children. Little does he know that Cayla, a protégé of the One Minute Manager, will help to change his life, and perhaps save his job. Cayla meets a Steve who is full of excuses, and sees himself as a victim. She proceeds to teach him about self-leadership, something the One Minute Manager had taught her and asked her to pass on to others. She tells him that he will be ready for self-leadership when he accepts responsibility for his own success. She tells him that empowerment is something someone gives you, while self-leadership is what you do to make it work. She will teach Steve three “tricks” of self-leadership: 1. Challenge assumed constraints. An assumed constraint is a belief that limits your experience. 2. Activate your points of power. She teaches him about five points of power – knowledge power, personal power, relationship power, task power and position power. She tells him that perhaps his greatest assumed constraint was not realizing his own power. 3. Be proactive! Get what you need to succeed! The two most powerful words to get what you need to success are, “I NEED”. When you use the “I need” phrase, you are coming from a position of strength. Cayla introduces Steve to the Situational Leadership II Model, which includes the Development Continuum. The Development Continuum is a model of four stages people usually experience when they are learning to master something. For each development level, the model provides a corresponding leadership style to provide you with the appropriate amount of direction and/or support you need. For example, when your competence is low, you need direction. When your commitment is low, you need support. This is a helpful, quick-read, that you will benefit from reading.
I finished "Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager" last night. Overall, I liked it. I've read a couple of leadership books with a similar style (I've typically heard it called a "leadership parable"), and it makes for a nice read. Basically, you're not just given blank leadership principles. Instead, those principles are couched in a novel-type story of a fictional leader in a realistic situation who has to learn those specific leadership principles to succeed. There isn't much meat to it...you could probably give a pretty good summary on a 3x5 note-card, but because it gives you the info within a story, that does kind of help you think through possible situations and scenarios that you may face.
Redifines the way you manage yourself and think of leading.
I have read this book previously but it has been revised recently so it was worth another read through as a refresher. I enjoy Mr. Blanchard's easy writing style.
I am sure I will listen to again.
Interesting to read "business novell" but not much you are left with what your finished. At most one page of strategies.
