Wise Fool's Guide to Leadership

Wise Fool's Guide to Leadership


CATEGORIZED IN


Nasrudin is the archetypal wise fool, who lived in the Middle East over 600 years ago, though his stories have travelled the world and been updated in very generation. Peter Hawkins has given a modern spin to 84 of these stories by turning Nasrudin into a management consultant. Simple truths are told in a straightforward and highly entertaining way. They shock us into seeing situations and ideas with which we have become familiar from a different perspective. Each story slips into our house by its engaging good humour, but once inside it can start to rearrange the furniture and knock new windows through the walls of our mind-a process that can be releasing and refreshing, but at times disconcerting! The book also provides an introduction to Nasrudin and his stories, and a chapter on "Telling Tales; the positive use of stories in organisations."

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

This is a real gem of a book. Many readers will be familiar with the Sufi tales involving the holy fool Mulla Nasrudin. Here Peter Hawkins applies the Nasrudin treatment to management consultancy and the results are hilarious. Essential reading for anyone working in an organisation. ~ , Scientific and Medical Network Review

Witty, memorable, humanizing stories with a piquant spice of wisdom that have a much wider application than the business world. Don't just enjoy the story, linger in it, experience and gain from "the mutative humour". ~ , Faith and Freedom
