9780975498811: Good Enough for Government Work - How to Squash Mediocrity in Government

" Good enough for government work" is a phrase that indicated a very high standard during the World War II era. If parts or equipment produced for the war effort were not "good enough for government work," they were rejected.

Now, sadly, that phrase has come to mean someone doing just barely enough to get by.

No more!

"Good enough" - isn't!

Enjoy 2 books in 1. One half of the book is a fable about a senior manager in a fictional government agency and the challenges he faces when dealing with empployee performance problems.

The other half of the book is a collection of short articles, quotes, and examples of exemplary as well as downright criminal government employees.

Plus, if you enjoy Jeff Foxworthy, you'll laugh at the list of way to determine if you might be a government employee.

For example, "if you ever stole rolls of toilet paper from work, you might be a government employee."

Perfect for anyone who works in government, government contractors, or anyone who supports government with taxes and fees!
