I have to say, the One-Minute Manager is pretty horrid. I had a boss who tried to follow it, and the entire staff quit over a period of a year.

I disagree. I think it is a great book to introduce the idea of actually letting people know what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong. That doesn't mean you should follow ANY book, or process, or procedure exactly as written and expect it to work well. As a source of ideas, it is a very simple book with some very simple ideas that way too many managers never even think about. Would I follow it to the letter? Not a chance. Does it have some very valuable information? Most definitely.
