        The one minute Manager I have found to be a dull, be good book. I believe it will
help you run your business. One minute reprimands and one minute praisings are a good
strategy to use in your business. I will definitely use them in my business, because I
believe in them. When employees do something wrong they feel real bad, and doing a
one minute reprimand followed by a praising helps them and you.
        It helps you because it makes them believe your on there side which you are and it
helps them because they don’t feel as bad. Employees nowadays feel hatred towards there
boss, trust me I know because when I work at Sweetbay a lot of the employees don’t like
the boss. I’m not one of them of course I understand that she is doing her best for
everyone’s interest. But what I may do is get her this book, maybe she’ll learn a thing or
two. In my opinion all bosses should learn how to be a one minute manager.
        Being a one minute manager helps you increase your employability liking.
Employees I know love to be praised, I’ve had that feeling several times. One minute
reprimands help because they aren’t that long and praise follows it. I know from
experience that employees don’t want to be talked to forever about something they did
wrong even when it was an accident. The one minute manager is an excellent way to get
to your employees.

Everyone is a potential winner, some people are disguised as losers, don’t let there
appearance fool you.
Take a minute, look at your goals, look at your performance, and see if your behavior
matches your goals
Pay attention to the writing on the wall
We are not just our behavior, we are the person managing our behavior
Goals begin behaviors, Consequences maintain behaviors
Share it with others; tell people how they can become a one minute manager tell them
what it means to be one
