Share this book with students, friends, family, and co-workers and see the power of stories at work." - Marshall Goldsmith, million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There"This is the book that makes story telling a profound form of learning. This is the must OB book for Business Schools across the world." - Andrew Kakabadse and Nada Korac-Kakabadse, professors of management at Cranfield School of Management and University of Northampton and co-authors of Bilderberg People: Elite Power and Consensus in World Affairs, Philosophy of Management Research, Global Boards: One Desire: Many Realities, and others."What a marvelous idea! If EVERYTHING were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten!" - Ian I Mitroff, adjunct professor UC Berkeley, professor Emeritus USC, and co-author ofDirty Rotten Strategies and A Spiritual Audit of Corporate America"In today s complex world, educators do a disservice when they convey the illusion of simplicity or control with theories that portray the workplace as linear, rational, and tidy. It s not. Human nature is complicated, and organizations are steeped in ambiguity and choice. The authors have created a powerful set of stories that offer a behind-the-scenes look at humanity in all its complexities and opportunities for us all to think, reflect, and grow." - Joan V. Gallos, professor of leadership, University of Missouri Curators Distinguished Teaching Professor, Henry W. Bloch School of Management University of Missouri-Kansas City and co-author of Business Leadership, Co-author, Organizational Leadership and Reframing Academic leadership
