Show synopsis What do your people at work and your partner and kids have in common with a five-ton killer whale? "Whale Done!" is an inspirational story that shows how to supercharge your effectiveness at work and at home using the positive, trust-building techniques learned from training killer whales. Following a visit to SeaWorld, business manager and family man Wes Stanzel learned that the techniques used by the trainers of huge killer whales - building trust, accentuating the positive, and redirecting negative behaviour - could be applied to his own life, both at work and at home. He began to see the difference between "Gotcha" (catching people doing things wrong) and "Whale Done!" (catching people doing things right. Blanchard shows how to make accentuating the positive and redirecting the negative the best tools to increase productivity, instead of creating situations that demoralise people. These techniques are remarkably easy to master and can be applied equally well at home, allowing readers to become better parents, and more committed partners in their happier and more rewarding personal lives.
