One simple idea can set you free: Don’t take on a problem if it isn’t yours!
The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey teaches managers an unforgettable lesson: how to have time to do what they want and need to do. The authors tell why managers who accept every problem given them become hopeless bottlenecks. With a vivid, humorous, and too-familiar scenario, they show a manager loaded down by all the monkeys that have jumped from their rightful owners onto his back. Then, step by step, they show how managers can free themselves from doing everyone else’s job and ensure that every problem is handled by its rightful owner. By using Oncken’s Four Rules of Monkey Management, readers will learn to become effective supervisors of time, energy, and talent—especially their own.
If you have ever wondered why your To Do list never gets done, The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey is for you!
"Profound, entertaining, and practical—lots of insights that can readily be incorporated into your life. I strongly recommend that you read The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey."
