I found the beginning fable or mock story really annoying and uninteresting but after that the book picked up and had some good info in it. This hs soe good info on employee onboardng systems and some really interesting insight on company expansion and how to handle growth.
Found several things in here we will be implementing.
"Walk the park" will be at the top of the list.
There are the reflection sections at the end of each chapter to help the readers see the practicality of the stories.
The narrator's voice can make you feel a little sleepy.
This audiobook outlined several different methodologies and concepts that connect with the way we should do business but don't. The person listening should reflect deeply upon how their training structure is aligned and how you can connected directly to the emotion feelings and outcomes of people. The reader is not glamorous but the information is spot on.
The content of the book itself is interesting and any Disney fanatic would like to hear about how their training was developed and progressed. The issue I have with the book is the narration as it sounds like the book was typed into a computer.
