    It was suggested that I read this for work. Philosophy is nice - all about setting expectations early, providing frequent feedback, confronting tradeoffs in values, and making managers accountable for their reports' performance. It's high on fluff, and could probably be condensed to a pamphlet / listicle on LinkedIn. It was suggested that I read this for work.

    Worth a scan The three sections written by Garry Ridge were interesting, if a little wordy. I felt like a lot of his philosophy was common sense, but I know many managers who fail to employ such common sense. I would recommend adding this to their bookshelves. The section written by Ken Blanchard was mostly commentary on Mr. Ridge's philosophy and a lot of plugging his own books. I feel like my time would have been better spent discussing Mr. Ridge's philosophy with my colleagues than reading the Worth a scan The three sections written by Garry Ridge were interesting, if a little wordy.

I feel like my time would have been better spent discussing Mr. Ridge's philosophy with my colleagues than reading the final section of the book. Fair warning: there are a lot of buzzwords--tribe, Situational Leadership, etc. They do get overwhelming at times. It's important to remember to take any leadership book as advice, not gospel, so if those buzzwords don't fit (like calling your team a 'tribe'), you can still employ the aspects of Mr. Ridge's philosophy that will be beneficial to you and your team.

    I liked the first three chapters more than the fourth (the only one Blanchard wrote). I loved that it was a case study (sorta) from a successful company. I felt like it would be fun to work for the WD 40 guy. Have a few takeaways to consider advocating for and/or using.

    This is just a specific company repeat of many of the Ken Blanchard principles. Don't get me wrong-I love Ken Blanchard. It's just that this book was so repetitious of what he has earlier taught and written about. Sorry, Ken! This is just a specific company repeat of many of the Ken Blanchard principles.

    An interesting concept and certainly some good points, but the writing was distractingly repetitive. It felt as though the authors reused phrases to increase word count.

    Perhaps a bit simplistic, but it provides a useful approach to re-thinking performance reviews.

    The concept of manager's setting up their annual reviews so accomplishments are measurable and obtainable is good in this book and explaining how both parties manager and employee should understand how these goals are graded is well explained. I think the last quarter of the book is weak, a lot of information about other books to read and did not pertain to the subject matter of the book, it also ended rather abruptly. I can say after reading I did find the information useful.

    Get an A at work Great and easy read. Inspires you to rethink how you evaluate yourself and others to achieve results. It’s great to know there are businesses that succeed financially by investing in their “tribe.” I recommend this book to anyone who has ever wondered what it would feel like to make a difference as a leader or wanted to become one.

    Bottom line: "Don't mark my paper, help me get an A" Are you simply grading your teams/individuals or are you helping them win? Bottom line: "Don't mark my paper, help me get an A" Are you simply grading your teams/individuals or are you helping them win?

    Overall, I enjoyed this read. It was a big heavy on leadership mantras, and phrases, but I looked past that and saw the lessons that I needed in my own young career as a 20-something.
