Free Book Contest: More Than a Minute


Holly Green’s publicist has given me five copies of her new book, MORE THAN A MINUTE: How to Be an Effective Leader and Manager in Today’s Changing World.

Here’s the Amazon description of the book:

More Than a Minute provides a refreshing look at the original "secrets" of effective managers explored in The One Minute Manager more than 25 years ago. It offers up-to-date methods and practices to prompt the thinking required to address today's challenges. Unlike many other management books, it is based on time-proven practices and actual business applications used by companies around the globe. More Than a Minute is written by a practitioner. As president of The Ken Blanchard Companies, Holly Green worked closely with Ken, co-author of The One Minute Manager. But much has changed since that book was published...and More Than a Minute is the title today's managers desperately need.More Than a Minute is not about the theory of leading and managing. It is about the doing it in today's context.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post (Only one entry per person). This contest is open to US and Canadian residents only (no PO Boxes). I will use random.org to determine the winners.

If I cannot get management to listen to my ideas, maybe I could get more than a minute?

Hi, Dan

Thanks for the opportunity to win a book. I enjoyed the One Minute Manager, but am even happier to see a sequel that appears, according to the title, to acknowledge that every management issue is not a "quick fix".
