Overview

Failed communications are crippling workplaces across the globe - sapping energy from staff and weakening entire organizations.

In this "edutaining" organizational fable, you'll get realistic scenarios and solutions, showing how individuals and organizations should address issues that cost organizations millions or even billions of dollars in wasted effort every year.

"...most will recognize the real frustrations and challenges of a corporation, and a life, trying to pull itself back from disaster. I found myself thinking about my actions, or lack thereof, in similar situations from my past and wondering if I, too, could overcome my fear of moose on the table and lead change.

Easy and fun to read, Moose on the Table might be just the tale for those about to embark on a quest for change in their own lives or organizations."
Laurie Blake, Editor
Workplace magazine

"I just finished reading your book, Moose on the Table: A Novel Approach to Communications @ Work. I honestly couldn't put it down! I loved the book and the storyline. The characters are so true to life. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who can seriously identify with one or more of these characters and situations. You hit the nail on the head (or should I say Moose head) and drove the message home. After reading the book, it has encouraged me to find my moose, work more effectively and have more courageous conversations with not only my own team but top management team members as well. No more going along to get along...that's not the kind of life I want to lead!"

Moose on the Table is an easy read that can create a common language and approach to dealing with tough issues with open communication in any level of an organization. It is a somewhat silly fictional story about problems an individual is dealing with in his work. The teams working with Mooses on the Table had the benefit of a common language and approach to addressing problems they happened across. It made working with the teams in training, discussion and use of the principles simple and easy. I would recommend it to trainers, organizational developers, and individuals looking for ways and reasons to deal with tough issues that are being avoided or ignored.

This is a light fable, easy to read yet thought provoking and motivating. We all know the non-discussable communication barriers (moose) that stifle our organization's efficiency yet we often resist stepping up to hunt the moose. Jim's writing style painted friendly visualizations that I could carry through my workday to identify and deal with the moose in our organization. This is a great story if you're in the mood to kick back and have light fun while reading a business book.
