One of my top reads for this year has to be ‘Gung Ho!: How to Motivate People in Any Organisation’ – a brilliant book that uses the behaviour of animals to demonstrate how people should interact in order to work more productively and make organisations more successful. If you’ve ever wondered why geese are so incredibly noisy when they fly overhead then I have the answer. They’re cheering each other on – not just the goose at the head of the group, the whole group. Honk! Honk! Honk! Which got me thinking – are all the members of my team honking like geese at each other to create a culture of praise and recognition?
