About the Book

The team-building book for the 21st Century.

The author of One Minute Manager proves, with a parable, the guiding notion that "none of us is as smart as all of us”. Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager, and his co-authors, do here for teamwork what Gung Ho! does for motivation and Raving Fans for Customer Service.

Using the entertaining and easily-digested parable style that made those books so successful, Blanchard et al have a simple but very powerful message to convey. They disclose four management secrets and highlight the key principles of “repeated reward and repetition".

The story is about Alan, who gets fired, despite being highly successful, because of his lone wolf mentality. He breaks through his initial resistance to new ways of working by spending some of the new-found time on his hands coaching his son's hockey team, and in the process learns all about the power of teamwork.

An inspirational guide to the art of working successfully together (and the power that derives from being part of a team), this is an invaluable read for anyone who has to work with other people, from one of the world's most successful business authors.
