The land of opportunity

I recently came across a YouTube video based on the book A Peacock in the Land of Penguins written by B. J. Gallagher and Warren H. Schmidt which explores what it means to be “different” in a world that values conformity, stability, and tradition.  It’s a story about courage in creating a land of opportunity where diversity in an organisation can exist if there is acceptance and trust.

As someone who is creative, imaginative and full of energy and enthusiasm, I found the message to be quite profound.

Thank you to Ken Blanchard for sharing this video which I found truly inspirational.
