"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
