Publisher's Summary

This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how to deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk.

The penguins are living happily on their iceberg as they have done for many years. Then, one curious penguin discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home - and pretty much no one listens to him.

The characters in this fable are like people we recognise, even ourselves. Their story is one of resistance to change and heroic action, confusion and insight, seemingly intractable obstacles and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It is a story that is occurring in different forms around us today - but the penguins handle change a great deal better than most of us.

Based on John Kotter's pioneering work on how to make smart change happen faster and better, the lessons you can learn will serve you well in your job, in your family, and in your community. And these lessons are becoming ever more important as the world around us changes faster and faster.

    "Fantastic !"

    I am neither a big fan of the 13 steps to glory , nor am I a fan of inferring moral of the story from cute tales, this book does the two things fabulously well ! If you have been a six sigma black belt or have been in positions of lesser influence to drive change, this book beautifully describes the ingredients necessary for change. When I reviewed my own current struggle with change, I was able to instantly identify missing personalities and missing actions that could dramatically improve our probability of success. Strongly recommend the book !

    "Excellent and enjoyable"
    Would you listen to Our Iceberg Is Melting again? Why?

    Even my kids enjoyed listening to this! Its told really well and the fable is very thought provoking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    'No no' penguin. I know how this is in my team and its good to have ideas to tackle this now.

    Story
    "Learning made fun :-)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Made learning about the topic of change management fun and easy to absorb. My business is undergoing a lot of change currently (who's isn't?) and a college recommended this. My daily commutes were filled with this memorable story. It was easy to absorb and inspired me.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favourite?

    No No was my absolute favourite because I can absolutely picture the person this most reminds me of. When working with this person I actually visualise the penguin character and it helps to give me patience :-).


    Any additional comments?

    A great way to learn, can't believe how much I remember of the story even weeks after I listened. Well worth the investment.
    p.s. This is not a kids book, whilst the format is of a story don't be fooled into thinking it isn't serious enough.
