Sam Weiss (Illustrator). A really awesome book that addresses diversity and differences in the workplace. Kenneth H. Blanchard (Goodreads Author). The Land of Penguins recruits talented birds from elsewhere because they want new ideas, but then treats the new birds like they should be penguins. Some of the birds try to fit in; the peacock tries to tone down his flashiness until they accept him and then he can be himself. Turns out An oddly-formatted book about workplace diversity. The idea is that you shouldn't have to look like and act like everyone else in your organization to do well and to be yourself.

Learn how to cultivate an organizational culture in which new ideas can flourish and innovation can take flight. From the Back Cover: A Peacock in the Land of Penguins brings new insight to an important topic - workforce diversity.

By presenting a charming fable about a peacock and penguins, Hately and Schmidt avoid those fences and get directly and powerfully at the essence of the experience of being different-and about the ways that people respond to differences. Even with the additional material, it is a very quick read. Reading carefully, it only took me about 45 minutes to read the fable, and another 10 or 15 minutes to get through the new material

A corporate fable based on the experiences of real people, this book follows the adventures of Perry the Peacock and other exotic birds as they try to make their way in the Land of Penguins. It is a tale of being different in a world that values the predictability of conformity.

I originally found this in the San Jose used book section. I though I would send it to an amiga in Chile cause she was a guide to the penguin reserve. WRONG its the best most wonderful parable about how creatives are suppressed by corporate black suit penguin types...

Very good read. It helps certain people find out why they are the way they are. What makes them tick.

Already printed in 10 languages and two editions since its debut in January of 1995, this book is essential reading for anyone feeling stuck in a job, a club, an organization, a church or any systematized group. (It's also a valuable guide for people who prefer the security of being stuck and feel pommeled by the wild beating of feathers around them.)

But, get the second edition, so you can take advantage of the 15 pages of identifiers, tools and processes that will take you from figuring out where you are to figuring out how to get where you want to go.

If you ARE a corporation or lodge or church or school, read the SECOND EDITION only if you're willing to be "dislodged" as appropriate!

I finally got around to reading this bestseller and now understand why it's sold so many copies. The beauty of this little book is that it gets at important diversity issues that are often emotionally "loaded" for people, but without making people defensive. I find that many people have set up psychological fences around their attitudes toward race, gender and ethnicity. They've been admonished often enough on these topics that they find it hard to listen anymore. By presenting a charming fable about a peacock and penguins, Hately and Schmidt avoid those fences and get directly and powerfully at the essence of the experience of being different--and about the ways that people respond to differences. This second edition contains the 111-page fable from the first edition, plus 15 additional pages of guidance and resources on how to deal with differences. Even with the additional material, it is a very quick read. Reading carefully, it only took me about 45 minutes to read the fable, and another 10 or 15 minutes to get through the new material. This book would be a perfect pre-work assignment for a workshop on diversity.

Peacock in the Land of Penguins is simple, fun, and right on. Its an easy 1 day read that has incredible impact in managing different personalities. This book will help you be a more effective manager.

I wanted to see if this book could be an supplemental resource to a diversity course at the university level.
