4.0 out of 5 stars A positive, inspirational message, 5 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Polar Bear Pirates and Their Quest to Engage the Sleepwalkers: Motivate Everyday People to Deliver Extraordinary Results (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not sure I'm completely sold on turning all your colleagues into cartoon character stereotypes, but the general message about how to maintain energy in a team and get it functioning as smoothly as possible makes a lot of sense.
While I'm not a manager, it pointed me at a couple of behavioural patterns I was falling into myself, and if nothing else the book proved useful for looking at my job from a different perspective. Looking at a team from a perspective of who is energising and motivating others, and how just because someone is in a relatively lowly position they're no less a person shifts away from the personal 'whats in it for me' perspective, and I'm sure that many who read this will at least gain a more balanced perspective on their own job.
Because of the writing style it's not necessarily a book I'd feel that comfortable passing on to a manager to read, but despite that I do think it's worthwhile reading - it is, after all, getting the message across in a short enough book to be readable in a single evening.
