"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!

About the Author:

Kyle Eastham is a former state and federal government employee who now works as a professional speaker and author.

He encourages government agencies and associations not to settle for "good enough for government work."

With over 20 years of experience as a buyer, conservation officer, training manager, and human resources manager, Kyle brings real-world examples, infused with humor, to his audiences.

Kyle also has attained the rank of Black Belt in 3 different martial arts, and often incorporates lessons learned in the gym in his presentations.

Review:

With over twenty years experience in state and federal government, Kyle has the background, experience and credibility to write this book. The key is "How to Squash Mediocrity" in any business. It starts with leadership that has a flight plan and the integrity to stand up to inferior performance and take action to correct it. Productivity and performance should govern pay, not just showing up for work. --Howard Putnam, former CEO, Southwest Airlines. Author of "The Winds of Turbulence"
