After reading an article about how a school district applied principles from a business book to turn around its disciplinary problems, I decided to pick up the book “Whale Done: The Power of Positive Relationships.”
At its core, the book’s message is that principles applied to training whales for Sea World shows can be applied by a manager in a business setting to get better results out of employees. And, actually, I personally think that it had even more applicability to me as a parent of young children.
It is a very quick read. I finished it in a few short reading sessions. So if you want a little bit of leadership inspiration – and a reminder that being a hard-nosed dog sled driver isn’t always the best way to positively influence employees – and you don’t have much time to devote to reading, I would recommend checking it out.
