From "The New York Times" bestselling authors of "Gung Ho!" and "Raving Fans"
Through the story of Alan Foster, "High Five!" offers a timeless parable with cutting edge information as to why teams are important and what individuals and organizations can do to build successful teams. Although Alan is an effective employee, he is unwilling to share the spotlight and is fired because, as his boss puts it, "Alan, we need good producers who are good team players, too."
While dwelling on his disappointment, Alan takes his son to hockey practice where it is clear that his son's team doesn't work well together either. joining the two overworked coaches, Alan teaches himself and the players the true meaning of teamwork.
Wrapped in a delightful and charming story, "High Five!" delivers a powerful message on teambuilding and why ten simple words, "None of us is as smart as all of us" can work magic for any organization.
