Whether you are looking for a few good tips to keep a good thing going or need to recapture the very essence of a productive workplace, this book will help. It provides valuable lessons nestled among the pages of a clever and compelling story.

The book is simple-to-understand and its teachable approach of setting and supporting core values and recognizing and celebrating those behaviors is very effective.
