The On-Time, On-Target Manager
How a "Last-Minute Manager" Conquered Procrastination
By Ken Blanchard, Steve Gottry
Read by Brian Corrigan

     Procrastinator Bob has some serious problems and his boss is concerned. Bob is a Last-Minute manager with no foresight and plenty of excuses. Bob’s boss feels work ethics are more important than work skill; it’s easier to teach a job skill to a person with work ethics than job ethics to someone with work skills.

       Bob has to see the CEO--the Chief Effectiveness Officer. This type of CEO teaches Bob how to be on time and effective in his job. With the "3-P strategy" and some personal experiences, Bob learns to be a better worker and a better person.

      Blanchard and Gottry show managers and workers how to prioritize and be on time. Following these lessons will, without a doubt, improve one’s job and life. I own a business and appreciate the wisdom these authors are sharing. At the same time, I thought how much this kind of advice would help our young people before they hit the work force. The On-Time, On-Target Manager may be a business book about managing, but I recommend it to anyone teaching high school and college students, especially the business classes. Written in a simple fiction-like manner, this is a book anyone can understand.
