What does training killer whales have to do with training humans? More than you might think! In this inspirational program, leadership expert Ken Blanchard applies a proven approach used by the whale trainers at SeaWorld to teach managers how to increase employee effectiveness at work.
"You can't punish a 9,000 pound Orca Whale, and then expect the trainer to get in the water with him. Just as you can't beat on your work team and expect them to improve their productivity at the end of the quarter." - Ken Blanchard
In contrast to the all-too-familiar “GOTCHA” approach to management (where supervisors focus on catching people doing things wrong), the Whale Done! Approach teaches viewers how to improve relationships by building trust, accentuating the positive, and redirecting the energy when things get off track. By building positive relationships, organizations become more productive, achieve greater results, and create an environment where everyone is genuinely excited about the work they are doing!
