ZENOBIA - THE CURIOUS BOOK OF BUSINESS
A Tale of Triumph Over Yes- Men, Cynics, Hedgers and Other Corporate Killjoys By Matthew Emmens and Beth Kephart Published by Berrett- Koehler Publishers Inc.
There have been numerous books over the centuries that have provided insightful metaphors to life's challenges. The business world is not unscathed by human experiences, rather it is an arena where strengths and weaknesses become visible, sometimes obvious. Instead of harping on the best success strategies or the "do what I have done" methods, authors Matt Emmens and Beth Kephart along with illustrator William Sulit tell a magical fable of what it is like to see business through new eyes.
In the book, Zenobia, a young woman challenges traditions and people's emotions that have encrusted a company into a place they never wanted to be. She dares to take a stand to overcome resistance regardless of how entrenched it is.
Whether it is a new hire or a senior manager, this book encourages people to tell the truth about the company direction, and provides encouragement to cultivate new habits.
