product description

It’s the thing we need the most, but which we often receive the least—positive reinforcement and feedback from those around us. In Green Beans & Ice Cream, author Bill Sims Jr. shares real-life stories and techniques for using positive reinforcement (PR+), one of the most powerful forces on the planet for sustainable behavior change and engagement.

At first glance, they don’t sound like they go together. But author Bill Sims Jr.’s book, Green Beans & Ice Cream, will become your favorite recipe by the first paragraph. It will change forever the way you deal with your family, customers, and coworkers.

In Bill’s thirty-year history, he has helped design more than a thousand behavior change systems that have produced tremendous gains in performance and profits at America’s top companies, including Disney, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, General Motors, and DuPont.

Whether in your family, school, or workplace, Green Beans & Ice Cream is a must-read for anyone who wants to master the remarkable power of positive reinforcement and improve the performance of their team.

A Real Treat!
"Green Beans & Ice Cream"��_ is an outstanding book. Management tries so often to over complicate things. Bill examines why poor decisions are made by individuals and why companies struggle to hold all levels accountable. Best of all, he lays out a great plan to help you bring out the best in all of your employees. It's hard not to like Ice Cream.

    Green Beans & Ice Cream
    You are a light shining in the darkness. Don't stop what you're doing, Bill. People in the workplace are dying on the inside and desperately need "hope"��_ restored. I shall use that which I've gleaned from your workshop to brighten as many lives as possible each day by letting them know that their presence and effort is appreciated.

      Green Beans & Ice Cream
      Chapter by chapter, the book supports the reality that positive reinforcement works wonders - it inspires me to look at all interactions differently whether I am at work, with my family or managing my 12-year-old's little league team.

          Just a note of thanks for your wonderful book. It took several hours of sober reflection on your message before the real power of positive reinforcement became clear to me--keep up your good work!
