A school bus size killer whale doesn't take kindly to punishment. Even playing around, they can live up to their name as some unfortunate trainers found out.
Yet whale trainers are consistently able to get these dangerous and majestic creatures to perform amazing stunts.
Our book of the month for February is “Whale Done: The Power of Positive Relationships.” Kenneth Blanchard and coauthors from SeaWorld weave a masterful tale of how to use positive reinforcement to get things done.
Learn how you can use the same techniques that got these majestic creatures to fly through the air on command to improve your own relationships at home and at work.
Enjoy this month's selection!
