Abstract:

"Our Iceberg Is Melting is a simple story about doing well under the stress and uncertainty of rapid change. Based on the award-winning work of Harvard Business School's John Kotter, it can help you and your colleagues thrive durng tough times. On an iceberg near the coast of Antarctica, a group of beautiful emperor penguins live as they have for many years. Then one curious bird discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home--and almost no one listens to him. The characters in the story, Fred, Alice, Louis, Buddy, the Professor, and NoNo, are like people you probably recognize in your own organization. Their tale is one of resistance to change and heroic action, seemingly intractable obstacles and clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. The penguins offer an inspiring model as we all struggle to adapt to new circumstances. Our Iceberg Is Melting is based on John Kotter's pioneering research into the eight steps that can produce needed change in any sort of group. This tenth anniversary edition preverse the text of the timeless story, together with new illustrations, a revised afterword and a Q & A wtih the authors."--
