Fred Rogers is one of the great icons of American culture and the values and philosophy for which he is famous have stood the test of time. Fables and the Art of Leadership brings those same values and philosophy to the workplace, where they are now needed more than ever. This unique and timely work is for everyone who aspires to become and be a better leader.
Mister Rogers did not expound abstract principles to help children face up to the problems they encountered; instead, he created and told countless fables and stories. Ian and Donna Mitroff’s book uses those fables to help managers master the most difficult challenges they face: achieving significant change; fostering creativity; curbing rudeness; promoting leadership; managing crises, and many more. It is their new interpretations for the workplace that will make Fables and the Art of Leadership a classic in business studies.
