Most of the denizens of the Antarctic penguin colony sneer at Fred, the quiet but observant scout who detects worrying signs that their home, an iceberg, is melting. Fred must cleverly convince and enlist key players, such as Louis, the head penguin; Alice, the number two bird; the intractable NoNo the weather expert; and a passle of school-age penguins if he is to save the colony. Their delightfully told journey illuminates in an unforgettable way how to manage the necessary change that surrounds us all. Simple explanatory material following the fable enhances the lasting value of these lessons.
Our Iceberg Is Melting is at once charming, accessible and profound; a treat for virtually any reader.
This is the easiest to read yet most informative book I have ever seen. Setting one of management's biggest challenges, what problem, I don't see a problem, ' in the context of a melting iceberg and a determined penguin, was a stroke of sheer genius. Michael Dimelow, Director of Product Marketing, TTP Communications I came across Our Iceberg is Melting in May, ordered and distributed 60 copies in June, evaluated its effect on our change effort, and then ordered 500 more copies in September. This is a gem. Heidi King, Program Manager, Dept. of Defense
