A&F Division President Michael Zaremski shared his thoughts on this book with us:
This book provided great insight into enhancing the culture to incorporate fun. By not taking things to seriously and allowing some fun, you can make an impact on your team. Our CEO John Shapiro is doing many of the little things already, employee welcome dinners, in-office birthday celebrations, anniversary recognition and performance perks. The book takes things a step further and not everything works, but it clearly illustrates being mindful of little things that can inject your sales team with some cheeky fun.
