Susan Fowler on Self Leadership and The One Minute Manager

In this episode of the Blanchard LeaderChat podcast, we speak with Susan Fowler, coauthor (with Ken Blanchard and Laurence Hawkins) of Self Leadership and The One Minute Manager®.

Fowler shares some of the key points from the book, including challenging assumed constraints, identifying personal points of power, and becoming more proactive in getting your needs met.

Fowler also discusses the importance of creating a culture of self leadership in today’s organizations where individual contributors seek out the direction and support they need to succeed. Fowler explains that in today’s fast-paced business environment, self leaders need to take responsibility and avoid adopting a victim mentality.  She shares how individual contributors can partner with their managers using the key principles of Situational Leadership® II, which are also a part of the book’s content.

Fowler encourages listeners to adopt the mindset and skillset for becoming a self leader.  She explains how taking that approach provides a self-directed path to performance, engagement, and optimal motivation at work.

Be sure to listen to the very end of the interview, where Ken Blanchard shares his thoughts and takeaways.
