Management GURU, Ken Blanchard, is a prominent, sought-after author, speaker, and business consultant. He is universally characterized by his friends, colleagues and clients as one of the most insightful, powerful, and compassionate individuals in business today.

Dr. Cathy Greenberg and I talked with Ken, who coauthored with Spencer Johnson, the phenomenal best-selling book, The One Minute Manager, which has sold more than 13 million copies and remains on best-seller lists. He has also authored Raving Fans, Gung Ho!, and Whale Done!. His books have combined sales of more than 18 million copies in more than 25 languages.

He is one of the most influential leadership experts in the world and is respected for his years of groundbreaking work in the fields of leadership and management.

  • Great leaders don’t wait until people do things exactly right before they praise them.
  • Praise progress, it’s a moving target.
  • We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
  • You’ll be amazed at how much you get done if you don’t care who gets the credit.   ~Abraham Lincoln
