Praise for Our Iceberg Is Melting

“As a result of the book and my sharing it with a few people in the organization, we have moved quickly on several fronts. We are galvanixed to go ahead instead of further studying, more organizing, and so on. It is making a difference for us.”
Tom Curley / former President and CEO, Associated Press

“Our Iceberg Is Melting is superb. It embodies powerful messages that can help a broad audience. It covers all the steps to success in a changing world, from finding the substantial issues, aligning with a potent champion, charting the course, getting buy-in, dealing with those who want no change, and so on.”
Chris Hand / Citigroup Global Account Vice President, Avaya Corporation

“Never have I read a parable in a business book that took a complex issue like change management and distilled it down into a simple story for all to understand. This is the ideal follow-on to Leading Change and The Heart of Change. A must-read for anyone dealing with managing change.”
Richard J. Kosinski / Category Development Officer, Yahoo, Inc.
