Download and read online Dancing with the Dinosaur in PDF and EPUB The purpose of this book is to present you with a new perspective about work and business -- new behaviors, new expectations, new theories. In order to do this, it is necessary to disrupt and challenge the strongly ingrained but outmoded and ridiculous assumptions that you've been taught about business by well-meaning parents, teachers, and by society. An important element of this book's strategy for challenging the old and teaching the new is to create and place you in a make-believe business jungle, replete with dinosaurs. This jungle and its dinosaurs are metaphors for the normal business world and the people who work in it. In order to strengthen the impact, all the dinosaurs are given special names.At first these names will seem strange and difficult to pronounce. Very quickly though, the names will become familiar and even endearing as you begin to internalize the concepts.
