Can't wait to put into practice

Learned soooo much from this title and I can't wait to begin to put this into practice to see if it really works. Great book on "working together" and it should be fun coming up with creative ways to show my workers about the importance of their work, autonomy and cheering others on!

Entertaining and teaching all wrapped into one!

Andy Longfellow wonderfully revealed how the Gung Ho principles are demonstrated in the wild by the squirrel, beaver and goose. So nicely weaved into the manufacturing plant work life.

Native American Spirits into Reality

I enjoyed this book and that it put together how different animals work to survive based on their missions and purpose... they work together to complete their goals just as teams should in today's work world. Sometimes it's easy to lose that and this book brings it back to sight.

Okay takeaways if you can suffer through the narration

Decent anecdotal examples of good management techniques, but overall pretty dated and there are definitely better options available. Lots has changed since the 90s and this book makes that obvious. Narration is cheesy and makes this hard to listen to.

Learned about this book from my CEO...

This book is great and draws attention to the important things in making anything a success. The spirit of the squirrel, the spirit of the beaver, and the gift of the goose all speak volumes about placing more value in the others we work around and giving them credit and ownership of what they do everyday and what gives them meaning. This short book will help motivate anyone to be a better team player and make any organization more successful.

Best book of its type

I have read many books like this and this one is best by far. Its one you can relate to, and I love how it talks about animals that relate to how you need to be that makes it memorable.
