Ease of Read Easy
I was attracted to this book because...
I’m researching leading with a sense of urgency and I have been reading a lot of John Kotter. I was intrigued by the fable concept.
This book was about
One penguin releases the iceberg they are living on is melting. This is the story of how he gets others involved to discover what they should do as a group to avoid disaster.
Things I liked about this book
As a fable, it tells a gr
eat story of these penguins,coming together and finding a way to reasonably work and find a solution to their community’s impending problem.
Why you should read this book
This book is a great encouragement that if we listen to each other and find ways to work together, we can solve many problems in community.
This book lived up to the back cover copy
The fable is a great illustration of how problems can be identified, tackled and solved by working together.
If you enjoyed Who Moved My Cheese? you will enjoy this story, too.
