Reviews

"Differences are not intended to separate, to alienate. We are different precisely in order to realize our need of one another. Birds of different feathers can, and should, flock together--for it is in bringing our diverse talents, skills, and creativity together that we create a true Land of Opportunity. To paraphrase the words of this lovely book, Our shared knowledge makes us wise. And our wisdom makes us successful." --Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate "The beauty of metaphor is that it communicates meaning, not just information, which is why I learned so much from this book about diversity, corporate culture, and organizational transformation--lessons I will never forget." --Warren Bennis, author of On Becoming a Leader "Every once in a while a small book comes along that deals with a profound subject in a very simple, elegant way. A Peacock in the Land of Penguins is such a book." --Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager "A lighthearted treatment of a difficult problem, this story reminds us of what we are really after in our diversity efforts." --Ann M. Morrison, coauthor of Breaking the Glass Ceiling "Insightful and witty . . . Gallagher and Schmidt have captured an essential truth about navigating the stormy seas of the contemporary workplace--from the strength of differences we can truly make a difference." --Jim Kouzes, coauthor of The Leadership Challenge
