Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Today, more than ever, individuals are searching for ways to positively contribute to organizational leadership, culture and behavior. To do that successfully, they need insight into organizational truth as well as strategies to reveal that truth to others in a way that does not cause defensiveness or resistance. Jesters are needed as much today just as they were in the courts of old.
David Riveness, in his insightful and entertaining book The Secret Life of the Corporate Jester, reveals how to adopt and apply a "jester's perspective." The perspective and behaviors of a jester can be understood and adopted by anyone regardless of his or her organization, role or position. Those who apply what they learn from this book can wield significant influence and bring about remarkable positive change.
The Secret Life of the Corporate Jester is a fun and intriguing read filled with insights into what it takes to be a successful leader in today's complex corporate environments. I love the entertaining way the story unfolds, holding your attention and interest as it leads you through self discovery, revealing the path to forward your own leadership development.
—Mary Peery, Senior Vice President, Strategic Change Management, Hewlett Packard
