From the Publisher:
Management legend Ken Blanchard and master entrepreneur Sheldon Bowles are back with Gung Ho!, revealing a surefire way to boost employee enthusiasm, productivity, and performance and usher in astonishing results for any organization. Raving Fans brilliantly schooled managers on how to turn customers into raving fans. Gung Ho! now brings the same magic to employees. Here is the story of how two managers saved a failing company and turned in record profits with record productivity. The three core ideas of Gung Ho! are surprisingly simple: worthwhile work guided by goals and values; putting workers in control of their production; and cheering one another on. Their principles are so powerful that business leaders, reviewing the manuscript for Ken and Sheldon, have written to say, "Sorry. Ignored instructions. Have photocopied for everyone. I promise to buy books, but can't wait. We need now!" Like Raving Fans, Gung Ho! delivers.Through the inspirational story of business leaders Peggy Sinclair and Andy Longclaw, Blanchard and Bowles reveal the secret of Gung Ho - a revolutionary technique to boost enthusiasm and performance and usher in astonishing results for any organization. The three principles of Gung Ho are the spirit of the Squirrel, the Way of the Beaver, and the Gift of the Goose. These three cornerstones of Gung Ho are surprisingly simple and yet amazingly powerful. Whether your organization consists of one or is listed in the Fortune 500, this book ensures Gung Ho employees committed to success. Gung Ho! also includes a clear game plan with a step-by-step outline for instituting these groundbreaking ideas.
Blanchard and Bowles, friendly names in the business inspiration genre, present a management technique intended to enhance the performance of employees and of the organization at large.
Author Bio
Ken Blanchard
Ken Blanchard has a B.A. and a Ph.D. from Cornell University, and an M.A. from Colgate. After college, he was a teacher and administrator, and, in 1979, he and his wife, Marjorie (whom he met at Cornell), founded a training consulting firm in California. In 1981, from his experiences with his clients, Blanchard co-wrote (with Spencer Johnson) THE ONE-MINUTE MANAGER; originally self-published, it went on to sell over a million copies. Since then, he has written several more best-sellers (always with coauthors) in related fields. His books are short, crisp, practical, and full of stories, emphasizing flexibility and team playing--the human side of the business world. In addition to writing, Blanchard is also a sought-after motivational speaker, and has been an avid golfer since he began playing with his father at the age of 6.
