After a heartfelt introduction by the authors, Eric Conger reads the now famous parable with perfect tempo and emotional pitch. The basic lesson is on how to concisely communicate goals, praise, and correction. Though focused on method, the underlying message is that people want to be managed and tend to flounder when their efforts are not directed and nurtured. The program is a reminder that quality work doesn't happen without organized and disciplined leadership. People need challenging and worthwhile goals, respect, emotional security, and a sense of being part of a community that makes them feel connected and invested. That this shouldn't take huge amounts of time is the key contribution of this audio, which ought to be on everyone's "top 10" list of management guides.
