Our Iceberg Is Melting

by Dr. John Kotter and Holger Rathgeber

On the surfaceOur Iceberg Is Melting is a simple story of a colony of penguins facing a dilemma. But contained within the story and the characters is a powerful message about the fear of change and how to motivate people to face the future and take action.

“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 CurleyFormer 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.”

“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.”
