Early life[ edit ] Wernher von Braun was born on March 23,in the small town of Wirsitzin the Posen Provincein what was then the German Empire and is now Poland. He was the second of three sons.
He wants to work for one and learn how to become one. But most of the workplaces he has seen do not provide any great inspiration. He meets hard-nosed managers who get things done but who the staff do not much like, and nice managers who love their staff but do not pay enough attention to the bottom line.
Could there exist a manager who combines the best qualities of each? He hears about someone who seems to fit the bill, ironically in a nearby town. To his surprise, this manager agrees to see him right away and to talk about how he manages his people.

Make sure each goal is written on a separate piece of paper. From this point on staff know exactly what is expected of them and will rarely come to the boss with problems - they know they are hired to solve them.
Staff should re-read the goals frequently as a means of ensuring performance matches expectations. They should also provide detailed records of progress for the managers.
This is not so that the manager can breath down their neck, but so he or she can 'catch you doing something right'. This stern rebuke is of the action or behaviour, not the person, and the manager will express consternation that it is not up to the staff member's usual high standards.
After the reprimand, the manager reminds the person how much they are valued. One minute goal setting works because "the number one motivator of people is feedback on results". We like to know how we are doing, and if we are doing well we feel good.
The one minute manager has a plaque on his wall which reads: One minute praisings are also effective for motivational reasons. It is rare to find someone who can know how to do everything well from day one; you have to put some effort into training. Praise gets them moving in the right direction.
Though it need take up very little time, praise is the fuel which can drive a whole enterprise.This one-page guide includes a plot summary and brief analysis of The One Minute Manager by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson.
