Wise Fool`s Guide to Leadership
Short Spiritual Stories for Organisational and Personal Transformation109
Nasrudin is the archetypal wise fool, who lived in the Middle East over 600 years ago, his stories have travelled the world and been updated in every 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."

'I commend this book to you - wiser even than The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, far, far funnier than In Search of Excellence, so much thinner than The Harvard Business Review Encyclopedia of Corporate Strategy, and astoundingly cheaper than Catch 22! ' Professor Mike Pedler 'A brilliant synthesis of old folk wisdom and the modern management environment. A must read for leaders, aspiring leaders and those that advise them.' Roger Housden, best selling author of Ten Poems to Change Your Life
