A business fable
by Les Landes
About the Book
This captivating tale offers a new path to extraordinary employee engagement. It begins with a thought-provoking premise about the essential differences between human beings and other living creatures—imagination and free will—and how those two qualities are inseparably linked. That premise opens the door to a fresh understanding and appreciation for human nature in the workplace, and it sets the stage for a breakthrough in optimizing employee performance.
The story features two main characters: Tom Payton, a human resources and employee communications manager who’s looking for insights on employee engagement, and David Kay, a colorful consultant who guides Tom on a journey of discovery. Their conversations run the gamut from the silly to the sublime, from the humorous to the serious, from the novelty of Barney the purple dinosaur to the elegant wisdom of Henry David Thoreau.
In the end, this unique business fable shows how tapping into the power and purpose of imagination and free will can help you create the type of organization where employees love to work and customers love doing business.
