For a book that can be read in under an hour, this little parable packs a lot of punch. A deceptively simple story, it has meaning for both professional and personal goals. It may have you nodding your head in agreement on almost every page...and quite possibly smacking your forehead when you realize you should have seen it a long time ago.    Perhaps the most poignant part (for me, anyway) was a simple question: "What would you do if you weren't afraid?" There's an inherent …

While some reviewers take a dim view of Spencer Johnson's parable of change, "Who Moved My Cheese?," it's possible that they are missing his point. Johnson never intended to write an encyclopedia of change management.

It teaches the basic lesson, in story form, that only those …

Although I had heard of this book, I didn't pick it up until the Chancellor in the community college district of which I am employed mentioned this gem.
