Few people have impacted the day-to-day management of people and companies as has Ken Blanchard. A gregarious, sought-after, and prominent author, speaker, and business consultant, he is universally characterized by friends, colleagues, and clients as one of the most insightful, powerful, and compassionate men in business today. His co-authored The One Minute Manager® library includes The One Minute Manager (1982), Putting the One Minute Manager to Work (1984), The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey (1989), and The One Minute Manager Builds High Performing Teams (1990). The library has collectively sold more than nine million books and has been translated into more than 20 languages. Blanchard is chairman of The Ken Blanchard Companies, a full-service leadership training and consulting company that he founded in 1979 with his wife, Marjorie. He is the co-author of Situational Leadership II (SLII®), the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and practical method of effectively managing and developing people, time, and resources in the world, and is renowned for his contributions in leadership, management training, government leadership training, and keynote speaking. He has been a guest on a number of television programs, including "Good Morning America" and the "Today" show, and has been featured in Time, People, U.S. News & World Report, and a host of other popular publications. Blanchard earned his B.A. in government and philosophy from Cornell University, his M.A. in sociology and counseling from Colgate University, and his Ph.D. in educational administration and leadership from Cornell University.
