Journey Outside the Golden Palace
Come take a mythical journey with Henry from The Village of Yore and the many colorful characters of The Golden Palace on their quest to unlock the palatial gates of corporate Ivory Towers. Dr. Cheryl Lentz has cleverly offered an allegorical tale that demonstrates the lessons learned when leaders in organizations fail to listen and serve the needs of their stakeholders. These lessons emerge through the eyes of such characters as Nada from The Village of Not Likely, Earl from The Village of That’s the Way We’ve Always Done It, and Merlin from The Village of Calm and Clarity. Join them as well as King William III and The Royal Academy of Bean Counters as they journey toward understanding the elegant simplicity of effective leadership, unlocking the secrets to The Golden Palace Theory of Management along the way.
This revised second edition offers a companion workbook for discussion, reflection, and refractive thinking. The purpose of this workbook is to examine each character within this allegorical tale and their leadership qualities more closely.
Take a leap of faith and follow us in our journey. Perhaps you may recognize some old friends along the way.
