Includes an expanded ''tips and Tools for Teaching Penguins to Fly'' section with additional practical exercises, self-quizzes, resources, tips, and survival strategies for peacocks and penguins alike Almost everyone has experienced the hurt and frustration of not feeling accepted, of being perceived as ''different'' and not fitting into the group. People who have good ideas that differ from conventional wisdom are often ignored or criticized for the very thing that makes them valuable to the organization-their creativity. Innovation often comes from the most unlikely places, and people in organizations need to break out of their ''penguin suit thinking'' to create a climate where new ideas can flourish. A Peacock in the Land of Penguins brings to life the challenges of birds of different feathers trying to work together through the engaging story of Perry the Peacock and the other exotic birds who struggle to be themselves in the conformity-minded Land of Penguins. This delightful fable humorously and memorably illuminates the importance of understanding and embracing the full range of perspectives that people bring to bear on their work.
