Interested in building high morale in your organization? This audiobook about an offbeat but high-achieving Navy ship will give you ideas on ways to get the most out of your people by truly valuing them. Captain Michael Abrashoff, Retired, believes that people should have fun at work, and his anecdotes about parties and laser light shows in the Persian Gulf are entertaining. George Wilson stretches his even-toned narration to convey the enthusiastic spirit of Abrashoff, who was nicknamed "Megaphone Mike" for his affection for his ship's PA system. Wilson also captures Abrashoff's values; his voice breaks when he tells of how a letter home earned a sailor his first words of approval from his father. I listened to this book twice.
