Both at your job, and in life in general! Here’s what we’re giving away:

The One Minute Manager by Kenneth Blanchard and Spencer Johnson — From Wikipedia: “The One Minute Manager is a very short book by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson. The brief volume tells a story, recounting three techniques of an effective manager: one-minute goals, one-minute praisings and one-minute reprimands. Each of these takes only a minute but is purportedly of lasting benefit.”
