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.

Horrendous

Gung-Ho! Well that was painful. I tried to see some value in it, I really did...but there is none.

First 20mins was just character development, and once the 3 secrets were revealed, the last 20mins felt like the last 1hr of Lord of the rings... just wrap it up already. The storytelling style was terrible, is this a fantasy book or business book.

All the "Insights" are basically just the usual superficial leadership tropes. At a stretch, the "best" part to me, was the no beaver bosses section in the middle as I thought they might explore the organisational model, but it never delved deeper to provide any meaningful discovery.

Without the incessant rambling, this "book" would be a brochure.

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.
