Publisher's Summary

Twenty years after creating the phenomenal best-selling classic The One Minute Manager, Ken Blanchard returns to its roots with the most powerful and essential title in the series as he explores the skills needed to empower yourself to success.

In this captivating business parable, best-selling author Ken Blanchard tells the story of Steve, a young advertising executive who is about to lose his job. During a series of talks with a gifted magician named Cayla, Steve comes to realize the power of taking responsibility for his situation and not playing the victim. Passing along the knowledge she has learned from The One Minute Manager, Cayla teaches Steve the three tricks of self-leadership. These three techniques not only empower him to keep his job but give him the skills he needs to keep growing, learning, and achieving.

The primary message of Self-Leadership and the One Minute Manager is that power, freedom, and autonomy come from having the right mind-set and the skills needed to take personal responsibility for success.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Kudos to the narrator

Speaking with different modulations and tones to depict various characters is impressive and engaging. Also quite helpful in visualising the narration. Thanks a lot. Thoroughly enjoyed..

Easy and highly applicable

The sentence "A person who does not have a goal is used by someone who does" ... really struck me to act and do something about my own self development!!
The author used relevant and easy applicable metaphors. Really enjoyed the book and the insights provided!

Terrible performance of an interesting concept.

The concepts in this story are great, and told in story form, a bit less dry than it could have been. But the narrator would benefit from an acting coach. Every sentence was delivered in exactly the same way. The delivery would have suited a text book, but not a dialogue based story. Painful.
