Description

A new edition of the classic business parable that has sold more than a million copies since 2006.

Our Iceberg Is Melting is a simple fable about doing well in an ever-changing world. Based on the award-winning work of Harvard's John Kotter, it is a story that has been used to help thousands of people and organizations.

The fable is about a penguin colony in 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 pretty much no one listens to him.

The characters in the story, Fred, Alice, Louis, Buddy, the Professor, and NoNo, are like people we recognize - even ourselves. Their tale is one of resistance to change and heroic action, seemingly intractable obstacles, and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It's a story that is occurring in different forms all around us today - but the penguins handle the very real challenges a great deal better than most of us.

Our Iceberg Is Melting is based on pioneering work that shows how eight steps produce needed change in any sort of group. It's a story that can be enjoyed by anyone while at the same time providing invaluable guidance for a world that just keeps moving faster and faster.

Recommended by my boss

The book wasn't for me. I found the story too drawn out. I found myself dreading turning on Audible because I just wanted to get to the part where they discussed the 8 steps and how they applied to real life non iceberg related change.
I find value in a story full way to remember the Kotter 8 step process for leading change. I wanted to like it more so I could connect more with my boss.

speed up the reading

I was able to follow the book while playing it at 2x. This cut my read time in half (math).

Engaging and Entertaining

I just finished Leading Change and now have read this delightful metaphor for the topics from the main book from Kotter. I think listening to both has real value, though this book feels pretty good standalone. This one goes less into the details of pitfalls that the master book goes into, but it does make the overall process and best steps more memorable. The narrator is talented, and in addition to providing a nice, even read, also delivers lots of fun voices to help you make sense of the large cast. Overall a great buy and a good experience.

very informative and useful knowledge for anyone

This is a great tool, if applied correctly to a leadership team, it can help leaders address change in a manner that is not so stressful

Fantastic Fable about how to create change

Simple story, elegantly told and beautifully narrated. Makes how to create change easy to understand and implement. The audio book bonuses make it worthwhile to own the paper book and audio.

Fun listen, loved the voices

A fairly quick and fun listen, loved the voices and the water splashes, etc. Too cute! The narration (and sounds) really brought the book to life. Interesting and insightful story for sure. I was reading this for a book club at work and it really illustrates what a corporate culture can be like and how teams need to work together for one common goal. Worth a listen!
