For over 30 years, Ken Blanchard has been telling leaders that their most important asset is their people. At the end of the day, your employees go down the elevator and out the doorthat's your organization leaving. Your people are your organization. And to have a high performing organization you have to believe this. You have to catch people doing things right: you have to accentuate the positive.
In Whale Done!, Ken Blanchard shows how to make accentuating the positive and redirecting the negative the best tools to increase productivity, instead of creating situations that demoralize people. These techniques are remarkably easy to master and can be applied equally well at home, allowing readers to become better parents and more committed spouses in their happier and more successful personal lives.
