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!

Good lessons to be learned

I enjoyed the book. But I'm more of a 'to the point' type of person.

I didn't jive with the story approach and I wish there was some kind of direct summary, but otherwise it's a good read for any manager

Excellent insight into leadership

Gung ho, tells a warm relatable story which could be about any company in America. The characters are engaging, and share leadership techniques through naturally occurring acts in nature with squirrels, beavers, and geese.

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.
