One minute manager: 1분 경영자. 

1분이라는 시간이 얼마나 짧을까요? 

아마도 촌각을 나누어 생활을 하는 현대인들이게는 길게 느껴질 수 도 있겠습니다만, 반대로 또 얼마나 수없이 많은 시간을 "쓸모없는 일" 에 낭비하고 살고 있는지 곰곰히 생각해보면 1분이라는 시간이 너무 나도 하찮고 가치없어 보이기도 할 겁니다. 

하지만, 결정적인 1분이라는 시간이 큰 경영상의 성과를 가져온다면 어떻게 생각하시겠습니까? 
1분이라는 시간을 가치있게 사용해서 큰 성공을 가져올 수 있다면 해볼만 하지 않겠습니까?

'누가 내 치즈를 옮겼을까를 쓴 Spencer Johnson과 함께하면서 미국 National Training Laboratory와 Blanchard Training and Development, Inc. 회장인 Dr. Kenneth Blanchard 라는 분이 1982년 펴낸 The one minutes manager 라는 오래된 책에서 1분의 시간이 21세기 들어서도 여전히 유효할 수 있음을 다시 한 번 생각해보면, 경영의 원리 또는 리더십의 원리라는 것이 오랜 세월의 변천에도 불구하고 여전히 비슷함을 알게 될 수 있을 겁니다. 

"하늘아래 새로운 것은 없다" 는 말이 바로 이런 것이 아닐까요?
