Helpful to: Managers striving for diversity with their team
Brief Review: A Peacock in the Land of Penguins brings new insight to an important topic - workplace diversity. Written in a charming, engaging style, it is a contemporary "corporate fable" - a tale for our times. This story echoes one that is unfolding each and every day in organizations all across the country - how to manage the increasing diversity of the workforce and capture the talent, energy, and commitment of all employees.
Reviewers Comments: Progressive managers understand their responsiblity to mesh diverse personalities and creativity to form the best possible team. This is a great story of individualism working to find acknowledgement and validation in a corporate setting that insists on doing things the "way we have always done them." All teams excel when individuals bring their unique ideas and talents to the group and veterinary practices are no different. We have the same problems moving forward as any other business. This is a fun, quick read that offers an excellent insight into personalities among coworkers. Grab a copy and enjoy. Debbie Hill, CVPM
