Publisher's Summary

This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how to deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk. The penguins are living happily on their iceberg as they have done for many years. Then, one curious penguin discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home - and pretty much no one listens to him. The characters in this fable are like people we recognise, even ourselves. Their story is one of resistance to change and heroic action, confusion and insight, seemingly intractable obstacles and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It is a story that is occurring in different forms around us today - but the penguins handle change a great deal better than most of us. Based on John Kotter's pioneering work on how to make smart change happen faster and better, the lessons you can learn will serve you well in your job, in your family, and in your community. And these lessons are becoming ever more important as the world around us changes faster and faster.

A good start to understanding 'change'

Loved the process chosen to narrate through the lives of penguins makes this book understandable & relatable to anyone.

My big aha moment - this book/8 steps for change is applicable in any sphere of life & not just in the business world where change is well spoken about but can be applied in all walks of life wherein sometimes change is either taken for granted or ignored.

Very useful audio

Excellent use of a fable to get across the eight step process of change. On the second listen more and more profound pointers were revealed to me. Great investment.
