Product Description

Sync or Swimis a refreshing, illustrated story of a sheepdog and a puffin that help us to solve a frustrating mystery: Why do morale-building programs often hurt morale…and why does communicating appreciation too often result in cynical reactions?

In Sync or Swim, you'll follow an organizational manager and the challenges he has to overcome:

  • A threatening storm rapidly approaching the island
  • The expectation to do more with less
  • Complaining, negative team members
  • Morale of loyal employees who feel undervalued
  • Long history of mismanagement

It's a small tale with great wisdom, a classic insight into the ways expressing authentic appreciation can change everything-and help us survive the storms that threaten us in work and life.
