The author of the phenomenal New York Times bestselling classic The One-Minute® Manager explores one of the most common and insidious problems plaguing the workplace—procrastination.
In every workplace, in every industry, lurks a diabolical career killer. Procrastination. In this latest addition to his bestselling series, Ken Blanchard tackles this problem head on, offering practical strategies any professional can immediately put into practice to improve his or her performance. In The On-Time Manager, he stells the story of Bob, a typical middle manager who tends to puts things off until the last minute. As a result, he misses deadlines because his lack of focus causes him to accomplish all the meaningless tasks before he can get to the important things. Like many professionals, Bob rationalizes, justifies, and tries to explain. With his trademark clarity and vision, Blanchard shows how Bob learns to overcome his problem transforming himself from a Last-Minute manager into a productive On-Time manager.
