Format: Hardcover
Nine Minutes on Monday offer readers a practical plan for creating and sustaining work and business relationships in a world where people can feel isolated, disengaged and overlooked. What I LOVE about this book is its heart to encourage managers to lead by example, while supporting people to discover, develop and use their gifts to connect, grow and give.

I really enjoyed this book and gleaned so many great insights on how to manage others effectively. Being a simple person myself I like how the author breaks it down with straightforward points spiced with entertaining true stories to make the points come across personally. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in a managing role, leadership position, or just wants to know what effective leadership in our workplaces should mirror in our modern age.

HASH(0x995f9708) out of 5 stars Are you a mountain climber or a mountaineering guide? Oct. 5 2012
By L. David Marquet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Can you really be a better leader in just 9 minutes? That's the premise of James Robbins' new book, 9 Minutes on Monday.

Currently on Amazon there are 365,000 books in the leadership and management category. That's 1000 for every day of the year. Why should you care about another one?

James Robbins grew up at the base of the Canadian Rockies. Inspired by the mountains, he combined his love of climbing with his passion for people. Initially propelled to be a preacher, corporations became interested in his secular leadership seminars where he combined his honest, observation of the human condition with his experiences climbing mountains (both as mountaineer and guide). He has a program and now a book.

The title refers to a reflective and structured 9 minutes at the start of every week where leaders actively decide what actions they will take during the week when interacting with their subordinates. I like this approach, as it is habit-centric in that the focus is on the behavior.

Secondly, the content is good. Rife with mountain climbing stories, James deconstructs the elements of good leadership in today's world where thinking is the most important activity your people do.

James makes the case that humans, including you and your subordinates, are motivated by 4 primary and 5 secondary needs. The 4 primary needs are:
* Care
* Mastery
* Recognition
* Purpose

The 5 secondary needs are:
* Freedom
* Connect
* Play
* Model
* Grow

He has chapters for each of these needs and provides concrete behaviors for how to meet the need for yourself and your employees. Throughout the book are woven some more enduring themes such as trust.

I found the book helpful, practical, and coaching without pontificating. It's a welcome addition to any leadership library and would also serve as a supplemental text or workbook for organizations wanting to improve the leadership skills of their people.

HASH(0x995f9798) out of 5 stars Nine Minutes Engages Employees for Business Results Aug. 17 2013
By L. Roe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
James Robbins book Nine Minutes on Monday is full of practical strategies (and examples) that managers can apply to become leaders of individuals and their teams. As noted in the book, our job as managers is to produce results and we achieve results through our people. Nine Minutes builds on what we know about human needs and motivation and positive company cultures. It provides a road map to follow weekly to ensure our employee's needs get met. The accompanying tools including the Nine Minutes on Monday Template and 8-Week Tracker make putting the nine strategies into practice on a regular basis both realistic and achievable. You will find Nine Minutes on Monday a good investment to grow your leadership skills, grow your people and grow your business.

HASH(0x995f9a38) out of 5 stars A Feast of Leadership Principles Sept. 29 2012
By Scott R Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
James has captured something very special in this compelling treatment of leadership: a content and format that "sticks to the ribs." Like most of us, I've read dozens of leadership management books, and have managed to retain a very small part of them in my own leadership skill set. I am more ambitious with this book. James writes with clarity, focus, humor, humility, and with a sense of mission. I can feel his belief in this way of leading, and when I read, I even feel his belief in me, in us. I love the integration of clear principles, larger stories that cement unforgettable context, apt illustrations, and summations we can hold onto and truly practice, step by step over time. Guess what I've put into my weekly calendar now on Monday mornings? (At least for nine minutes)

HASH(0x995f9fd8) out of 5 stars Relatable and Actionable for Any Leader Sept. 27 2012
By RF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
James shares stories from a career in leadership that are easily relatable for anyone who has spent time managing or leading groups. His examples give a clear picture of what it looks like when leaders are focused on the most important aspects of there job: Getting great results from their people and taking their team up whatever mountain they face. His plan gives leaders time to focus on these things, and is simple enough that anyone can start putting it into practice immediately.

My organization treats Mondays as bad as any, and makes me think what great things could be possible if more leaders read and put into practice the principles James shares.

HASH(0x995f9fcc) out of 5 stars Worthy Read Sept. 11 2015
By wannabe wanderer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm not a manager, but possibly a leader as I related to everything said in this book. Unfortunately, law doesn't seem to have management classes for the attorneys which is a shame, because if they would follow the principles in this book, recognizing their employees, they might just have a firm they could be proud of. I am glad I read this book and think everyone should read it regardless if you are a manager or not.
