"Written in an easily accessible QandA format, the book closely examines and expands on the three keys to empowerment originally presented in Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute--sharing information with everyone, creating autonomy through boundaries, and replacing the hierarchy with teams. It clearly outlines the promises and challenges of each stage of the journey, providing managers with thought-provoking questions, clear advice, effective activities, and action tools that will help them create a culture of empowerment. Wherever they are in the journey, managers will find a clear roadmap in this user-friendly action guide. Book jacket."--Jacket

Blanchard (The One Minute Manager) and associates from his self-named management consulting and training firm present a greatest hits collection of tips, advice and techniques from 25 years of work on unleashing "the power and potential of people and organizations for the greater good." After initial sections on setting targets and creating a vision for one's company, plus delivering the best possible experience to the customer, the book delves into the manager-employee relationship. Blanchard and his co-authors recap their "Situational Leadership" technique, which calls for a flexible leadership style to match the setting and players involved. They also review the three elements of their "One Minute Manager" idea: setting goals, delivering praise and offering "reprimands or redirection" adds up to a small percentage of a manager's responsibility but will lead to desired results. The collection's closing chapters advise managers on how to identify their core values and set examples for staff. The scope of the book and its level of detail make for a dense read in its entirety, but a detailed table of contents will allow managers easy browsing

Great leaders grow : becoming a leader for life by Kenneth H Blanchard( )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Successful leaders don't rest on their laurels. Leadership must be a living process, not a title on a business card, and life means growth. As Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller write in the introduction, "the path to increased influence, impact, and leadership effectiveness is paved with personal growth ... Our capacity to grow determines our capacity to lead. It's really that simple." Great Leaders Grow shows leaders and aspiring leaders precisely which areas to focus on so they can remain effective throughout their lives. As the book opens, Debbie Brewster, an accomplished leader herself, becomes a mentor to Blake, her late mentor's son, as he begins his career. Debbie tells Blake, "How well you and I serve will be determined by the decision to grow or not. Will you be a leader who is always ready to face the next challenge? Or will you be a leader who tries to apply yesterday's solutions to today's problems? The latter will ultimately fail. The difference: the decision to grow. And not a short-term decision but a decision to grow throughout your career and throughout your life. This single decision is a game changer for leaders."Over the next several weeks Debbie reveals what this means in practical terms. She and Blake explore four ways that leaders must continue to grow, both on the job and off, because who you are as a leader is inextricably connected to who you are as a person. Whether you're a CEO or an entry-level employee, you'll be inspired to reflect on your own life and to design your own unique long-term growth plan, leading to not only continuing professional success but personal fulfillment as well."--
