Fables cut through complexity to reveal simple, crucial wisdom.
Sync or Swim, a refreshing, illustrated story of a sheepdog and a puffin, helps solve a frustrating mystery: Why do morale-building programs often hurt morale...and why does communicating appreciation too often result in cynical reactions?
We all work with others and we all experience the storms of life. The fable is a fun read, showing how to communicate authentic appreciation that results in effective teamwork and productivity. The bear, squirrel, bird, beaver, chipmunk and cat all respond in different ways. Like us, they have their own languages of appreciation.
Fables can be wonderful tools for deeper understanding and lively discussion. Sync or Swim is a little tale with great wisdom, a classic insight into the ways expressing authentic appreciation changes everything-and helps us to survive the storms that threaten us.
