In the late 60’s Hershey and Blanchard developed Situational Leadership, a contingency based leadership model that encourages leaders to diagnose a follower’s development level in order to provide the right amount of support and direction. After 40 years, the split up of Hershey and Blanchard, and the evolution of Situational Leadership II, Leadership and the One Minute Manager provides a great manual for managing and ultimately developing competent and committed employees. At a little over 100 pages and told as a story, the book may seem light and fluffy at first glance, but, includes some of the most important skills any leader should master. Leadership and the One Minute Manager should be handed to every new manager.
