Ken Blanchard is a prolific author having written many books on management in business. Probably his best known, and an international best seller is The One Minute Manager which he co-authored with Spencer Johnson. For over twenty years, managers and business owners have read, and taken on the techniques of productivity improvement, team management and personal prosperity explained in this short book.
Perhaps the book that I have given to many people, and recommend to any manager, parent, team leader, or anyone who needs to get others to do what you want, is Whale Done!: The Power of Positive Relationships. Based on the concept of how do you train a killer whale, this book has helped many managers and owners improve working conditions. These two books must be in your library.
Ken Blanchard is now the Chief Spiritual officer of his own company, The Ken Blanchard Companies focusing on international management training courses. A graduate at Cornell and Colgate universities, Ken is one the most influential authors in business.

Ken Blanchard Quotes
“Humility does not mean you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less.”
“If you don’t blow your own horn, someone else will use it as a spittoon.”
“There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”
“The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority.”
“Everyone knows that not all change is good or even necessary. But in a world that is constantly changing, it is to our advantage to learn how to adapt and enjoy something better.”
“The best minute you spend is the one you invest in people.”
