The ebook focuses on the Human factor, resolving the question “ How people work “ best ” with other? ” .
The main content of the ebook is One Minute Goal, One Minute Praisings and One Minute Reprimands.
Example 1: The manager wants to go to HN on Saturday at 3 pm this week. => Expected results: the manager will be at HN prior to 3 pm on Saturday. => Goals: 1/ Place a return-ticket to HN by flight. 2/ Prepare hotel. 3/ Prepare vehicles. Example 2: The manager receives a requirement from the customer in IT field. => Goals: 1/ Function 1 1.1/ Change UI 1.2/ Change Code at class A, B or C 2/ Function 2 2.1/ Change code at Window Services 3/ Function 3 3.1/ Change class D 3.2/ Change UI Example 3: An employee considered as an athlete is playing bowling ** Case 1 : Employee knows what to do, their goals. Then, they make a shot => They are happy, yell, scream and jump because they could see the pins falling down. ** Case 2 : If the employees don ’t know exactly what the managers thinks about his goals, it means the managers assume that the employee know what’s expected of them. => Goals are not finalized by both manager and employees => There is a sheet across the pins and the athlete don’t know how many pins are falling down after their shot. ** Case 3 : If the managers give they feedback for the result => In this case, there is still a sheet across the pins. Then, they make a shot => They know how many pins down because the feedback is considered as a supervisor behind the sheet to notify the result. => Case 1 is the best one when employee and manager share the same goals clearly. Example 4: Playing golf at night => The players do not see the pins. Example 5 : Playing football => What is matter if there are no goals to shoot.
Example 1: How to train a pigeon to get food from the pellet machines. Imagine that the pigeon need to go many ways left, up, right, … then press the button to get the food. Solution: We draw the may lines to the target. When the pigeon finishes moving a line, we feed it a pellet. Then, we keep training it for the other lines. => So, feeding a pellet means that “pigeon knows that it is on the right way and try to work liked that”. Example 2 : How to train a child to talk a long statement “Please pass me a glass of water”? Firstly, teach them say each word liked “water”. When it said “waller”, we kiss and hug it. Then, keeping teach him to say “water” correctly. If it said right, we kiss and hug it. => So, kissing and hugging is the way to let the child knows that it works good. Example 3 : How to train a child to walk? May be it walk one step and fall down => Encourage and kiss, hug until he could walk perfectly. Example 4 : How to train a new QC / developer to be familiar with YP system? => These examples illustrate that the most important thing in training somebody to become a winner is to catch them doing something right—in the beginning approximately right and gradually moving them towards the desired behavior.
With a winner you don ’t have to catch them doing things right very often, because good performers catch themselves doing things right and are able to be self-reinforcing.
Answer 3: Most managers wait until their people do something exactly right before they praise them. As a result, many people never get to become high performers because their managers concentrate on catching them doing things wrong. => In our pigeon example, it would be like putting the pigeon in the box and not only waiting until he hits the lever to give him any food but putting some electric grills around the box to punish him periodically just to keep him motivated. => After getting punished for a while and not knowing what acceptable behavior is (that is, hitting the lever), the pigeon would go into the corner of the box and not move. To the pigeon it is a hostile environment and not worth taking any risks in.
Example 1 (In management field): For familar goals which they have already done many times successfully, apply reprimands to let them know they should not repeat it again in the furture. Example 2 (In life): How to make someone stop doing something by making them a reprimands? 2.1/ A girl is going to dying from cirrhosis of the liver. But she was still denying that she had a drinking problem. => How to make reprimands on her to let her know her wrong thinking? All member in her family gather at her bedside. Each member described her specific drinking incident they had observed. Then, they felt about it. They were angry, frustrated, embarrassed. And then they told her how much they loved her, and they instinctively touched her and gently said how they wanted her to live and enjoy life once again. 2.2/ How you make your child stop doing something wrong? Each parent is taught to physically touch their child by putting their hand on the child ’ s shoulder, touching his arm, or if he is young actually sitting the child in their lap. Then the parent tells the child exactly what he did wrong and how the parent feels about it—and in no uncertain terms. (You can see that this is very like what the family members did for the sick woman.) Finally, the parent takes a deep breath, and allows for a few seconds of silence—so the child can feel whatever the parent is feeling. Then the parent tells the youngster how valuable and important the child is to the parent.
1/ Reprimands must immediate because: -> Manager will deal with one behavior at a time and the person receiving the discipline would not be overwhelmed. They could hear the feedback. -> In contrast, if apply ‘gunnysack’ or save up negative feelings about someone’s poor performance -> Performance review should not be done once a year. 2/ Reprimands for behavior because: -> Never attack a person ’ s worth or value as a person. Since their OK-ness as a person is not attacked, they don ’ t feel they have to defend themselves -> Manager ’ s feedback and employee ’ s reaction is about the specific behavior and not their feelings about themselves as human beings. 3/ Yes or No for shake hands or touch them Yes, if you know the person well and are clearly interested in helping the person to succeed in his or her work. And no, if you or the other person has any doubts about that.
Question 3: Example: A story in ancient China. + At the first time: emperor said the prime minister : “I will give praisings and you give reprimands to people”. -> Not work for emperor but work for prime= minister. + At the second time: emperor want to give reprimands while prime minister give praisings -> Nor work for emperor but work for prime minister => If you first tough on the behavior, and then supportive of the person, it works, Tough ‘n’ Nice.
Why is one minute manager important? -> Simple and is experienced from 1982 -> It shows that a manager is not as complicated as people would believe.
“ Most companies spend 50% to 70% of their money on people’s salaries. And yet they spend less than 1% of their budget to train their people. Most companies, in fact, spend more time and money on maintaining their buildings and equipment than they do on maintaining and developing people. ” “ Well, in most of the organizations, employees didn’t know what they were supposed to be doing. No one bothered to tell them. If you asked them whether they were doing a good job, they would say either ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I think so.’ If you asked why they thought so, they would reply, ‘I haven’t been chewed out by my boss lately’ or ‘no news is good news.’” “ Such managers don’t tell their people what they expect of them; they just leave them alone and then ‘zap’ them when they don’t perform at the desired level.”
1. Manipulation is getting people to do something they are either not aware of or don ’t agree to . That is why it is so important to let each person know up front what you are doing and why. -> There are things that work, and things that don ’t work. Being honest with people eventually works. On the other hand, as you have probably learned in your own life, being dishonest eventually leads to failing with people. It’s just that simple. 2. How you talk to them in the way that they admire and follow you without anoying or hating feeling?
