Publisher's Summary

Executives weary of Japanese motivational techniques and the ceaseless advice of self-proclaimed excellence gurus will find solace and wisdom in the management style of the world's hungriest little bear, Winnie the Pooh.

In this clever business primer, author Roger E. Allen uses the characters in A. A. Milne's classic children's story to illustrate such fundamental principles of good management as leadership, communication, organization, motivation, delegation of authority, and the importance of setting clear objectives.

Allen's droll sense of humor cuts through the mind-numbing jargon of most business books. The result is a highly entertaining and surprisingly practical guide through the Hundred Acre Wood of effective business management.

A quick business course from a VIB

I had read this book years ago and recently ran across it on audible.

The book is a quick refresher course on what management is and how to be a good manager delivered by the cast of Winnie the Pooh.

The length makes it perfect to listen to on a short flight or even sitting around the airport.
