The 1% Edge

power strategies to increase your management effectiveness

Authored by JoAnn R. Corley

Note: This book is available as a workbook also It's now a 1 of a kind, unique management workshop entitled Management Mojo - The 1% Way. Go to In the years that I've conducted seminars across the country, I've come to this conclusion: relevant knowledge can come in small packages. It could be one quote, one principle that when applied can gain significant results. I once coached a derailing executive where it was determined that the most essential action to turning around his performance was taking the time to plan. You mean it was something as simple as applying one principle - taking the time to plan was the initial targeted solution? Believe it or not - yes! The simple act of planning his week- mapping his schedule was the most critical, non-negotiable action that got immediate, necessary results. In fact, within a few weeks, his direct report saw a complete turn around in his performance. Awh....there's the formula - one simple principle applied generated a significant, meaningful, intended result. There in lies the premise of this book. I've taken many of my "small package" simple tips, principles, and how-tos and laid them out in a compact book format for your consideration. This is targeted learning for busy people. Targeted learning is getting at the meat or essence of something it can be used just as quickly. Also this book is compact enough you can carry it with you. Consider this your portable coach! The tips are broken up into categories; areas that you may want to target for development. Each is what I consider a "high-impact" area. High-impact means if there is growth in that area, there will be a greater measure of satisfying results. This book is also designed to stimulate your thinking for self-coaching; encouraging you to consider 1 concept and how to apply that 1 to achieve measurable results. There is space on each page for notes, to draft an action plan, and to record the names of those with whom you'll want to share the information. When you share information with others, it's reinforced within yourself. Finally I encourage you to check out the companion blog to enhance andcontinue your learning, and bring more value to your purchase.
