Abstract:

100 Aesopic fables, ancient and new, compiled in a beautifully illustrated and designed book; an un-textbook on leadership.Arranged in seven chapters, the gods, talking trees and animals respond to the eternal questions of organizational life: leading, following, cooperating and collaborating, innovating, and making progress. John Lubans' contrarian and whimsical commentary is drawn from decades of leading and following, mistake making, learning and innovating. His commentary touches on freedom at work, the democratic workplace, team building, and dealing with common workplace problems; his approach is light hearted, pragmatic and humorous, a respite from the traditional management textbook.The book features space for the reader to note his or her reflections.Of interest to leaders, followers, supervisors, middle managers and anyone seeking new insights and perspectives into why things in organizations work the way they do or don't.

Short fables emphasizing the philosophical and ethical aspects of leadership.
