Chief executive Leon King is a narcissistic, modern-day Scrooge figure. He sits at the top of a rapidly failing company, hated and feared by his management team who bear the brunt of his blame, anger and daily threats. His lack of leadership is plainly obvious to everyone except himself, and morale is at an all-time low...but no one can stop the downward spiral. That is, until the working lives of King and his colleagues are radically changed with the appearance of Jason Hand, a shaman disguised as a management consultant, who offers a powerful new paradigm to help renew this flagging corporation and the people within it. The Corporate Shaman is a magical story with practical application in the real world. As with bestsellers such as Who Moved My Cheese and The One Minute Manager, Whiteley's book is set to become a business fable of cult status. Includes foreword by Ken Blanchard.
