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.

Format: Paperback
I read this book in one session on a Sunday afternoon. The skillful writing had me literally with tears rolling down my cheeks by the end of the prologue (not of laughter!) and thus I was glued. The message in the book is simple and a must for anyone who is looking to motivate their teams and increase productivity for the long term rather than short term fixes and is about looking at your own attitude as well as that of your team. If you wish to stay as one of life's lone rangers don't buy this book.

Format: Paperback
Gung Ho! is a simple yet powerful presentation of three easily understood principles which saved an American factory from closure and resulted in the site receiving a White House commendation.
The three principles involve lessons from the natural world. The animals used to demonstrate the principles - squirrels, beavers and geese - should be sufficiently familiar to most readers, even if only from television, to not obscure the messages which the authors present. To me the beauty of this book - less than 200 pages in paperback - is the evident conviction conveyed in the text, supported by several references to other organisations who have successfully adiopted the Gung Ho! principles.
This is not a dry technical managerial textbook. It is rather a story of how observation of the natural world can be used to motivate human beings.

This is an all American blockbuster were the native indian runs the no good cowboy industrialists out of town and at the same time saves the first lady from being fired. Coming to the rescue, Andy (native indian) shows his boss the ways of the wild. If David Attenborough and brother Richard had ever considered making leadership and management films this would have been an opportunity to work together and utilise their talents. The behaviour of the squirrels, beavers and geese is replicated back in the factory so production can be increased and the factory and workforce saved. It is a nail biting, rollercoaster ride, set against a backdrop of the American wild and the seasons, will they have time to learn the way of the squirrel, before the bosses shut those factory gates, will we ever understand the way of the beaver and will we ever be able to implement the way of the geese, before time runs out! When you open the last page of this book the star spangled banner plays loudly. The book is a great metaphor for leadership and management within a team environment. God Bless America

I must admit, I was at first a bit skeptical of this title's "Native American wisdom" -- talk about squirrels and geese . . . however, because co-author Sheldon Bowles unselfishly provided guidance to us as we edited our own book, "Bubba on Business" (also available at Amazon.com), I forged ahead. What I found was an amazingly practical book, filled not with vague "principles" but solid, actionable ideas. In our consulting business, we have found no better articulation of these straightforward ideas than Blanchard and Bowles' Gung Ho! Watch out, though -- if you apply Gung Ho's learnings, it will change your business and your personal life. Kudos from someone who's a fairly skeptical reader of so-called leadership books. This one's not on the top shelf with my "show off" titles, but down where I can reach it again and again. It's really worth buying.

Another Ken Blanchard classic this time about motivation and how to get the best out of your work force. Again written as a simple to follow story to emphasise the learning points. This book can be read and understood by anyone in 2 - 3 hours.

I bought this book for my husband and he in turn bought copies for each of his team members. He recommended it so highly that I read it myself - I have now read it three times. It's a must read for everyone as it can just as easily be applied to everyday life as to business. I have recommended it to several friends and those who have read it agree that it has made a positive difference to their lives.

I looked forward to my lunchtime reading breaks while reading this book, as I knew I would come away feeling more energised and positive about what is possible.
This is an easy book to read, and in some ways it is a simple book, although not simplistic. The principles are timeless, and you can take practical advice from it which you can apply straightaway.
What's cool is that the story is based on real events, and its connexion with real-life people is touching. A success-story blueprint.

I have bought this book around 6 times and give it to people occassionally (well 'lend' it, which is in effect giving it isn't it !!) I love the simplicity, and the power of the messages. I read this once every 2-3 years to remind myself, takes a fwe hours to read and breathes fresh motivation into me again. I genuinely recommed this book, for everyone.
