For most of us, teamwork is a part of everyday life. There are several ways in which teamwork is important and vital to the success of the company and to the development of each employee. The fundamentals of team work are exquisitely enlightened in the book Gung Ho! by Ken Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles. Gung Ho! process has been used by organizations around the world, and was recognized in 2000 by Human Resource Executive magazine as one of the Top Ten Training Programs. Gung Ho! is the Chinese phrase for “working together”. The Gung Ho! model in based on three central principles.
- “The Spirit of the Squirrel” teaches a lesson of the power of worthwhile work
- “The Way of the Beaver” showcases empowerment
- “The Gift of the Goose” shows the exponential factor of motivation
This book makes a good point that although compensation and material rewards are necessary and important, ultimately employees are happy and more productive if they believe in what they are doing.
