Gung Ho! (Chinese: Working together; boundless enthusiasm, energy and dedicationapplied to the same work) Ken Blanchard, Sheldon Bowles
SPIRIT OF THE SQUIRREL:
1.Knowing we make the world a better place.
It is the understanding how the work helps others, not the work units dealtwith. See what you are doing in people terms.
With it comes SELF-ESTEEM as powerful as love or hate. Understandinghow your works fits into the big picture shall make you feel good and that isthe beginning of Gung Ho.2.Everyone works toward a shared goal.
Goals sharing means buy-in. Trust and putting team members first tosupport for goals.
The manager sets the critical goals. The teams can set the rest. (Peoplesupport the best, which they help to create).
Goals focus attention productively.3.Values as real boss guide all plans, decisions and actions.
Goals: For futureValues: For now.It is set It is lived.It changes Rock solid
Goals set the people going, values sustain the effort.
Values become real only when you demonstrate them in the way you act andinsist others behave.
Values have to be hold up in tough times else it is a feel good slogan of theday.Answer the three questions?1.Why are we here?2.What are your goals?3.What values will guide us?
THE WAY OF THE BEAVER:
In control of achieving the goal.
1.A playing field with clearly marked territory.
Goals and values define the playing field and rule of the game.
Leaders decide what position team members play but then have to get off thefield and let the players move the ball.
Freedom to take charge comes from knowing exactly what territory is yours.2.Thoughts, feelings, needs and dreams are respected, listened to, and acted upon.
Value individuals as persons.
Information is gatekeeper to power. There should be open access toinformation.
To be in control, you needs rest of the organization support.
