A Few Testimonials (Many more on Amazon)
"I started this book and it was difficult to put it down. I read it not once but three times on my last trip. This book is exactly what I need for my team. I want to make sure each one of my team members have an opportunity to read this inspiring book on teamwork. It is an excellent, easy to read and full of wonderful powerful motivation stories that can make you feel good about yourself and your team." Fred Thomas, VP of Sales, ArcOne
This book has inspired me to be a better team member! I have already become a better manager because of it. I have implemented a number of the suggestions, specifically being positive and celebrating a team members success in front of everyone. It was fun to watch the positive chain reaction of events take place by the simple act of celebrating another team member publicly. ~Jeffrey Fawcett. Training Manager, Wine Country Gift Baskets
This is a must read... Huge value. Great reference. I intend to purchase a copy or "You are the Team" for each of my board members. ~Randall Thompson
