Book Description
The Ugly Duckling Goes to Work” by Mette Norgaard, PhD takes on some of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales and illuminates the reader with lessons how to create work-life balance in postmodern times. Being a leadership coach, and in honor of her fellow Danish, Dr. Norgaard unsheathed the sharpness of H.C. Andersen’s seemingly simple folk tales and set it free to cut readers deep into the core. Experience once more with renewed poignancy the bedtime stories we have loved back when we were carefree children, and remember that inside of us is a strange wisdom from youth waiting to be rediscovered: The Emperor’s New Clothes mocks snobbery and shows us how our ego can turn us into fools. Clad in our power suits, we become more concerned with our image rather than ourselves. The corporate culture fuels us to be blind to self-awareness and personal beliefs and encourages us into accepting only what executive management would find meritorious. The Ugly Duckling’s story of rejection and growth allows us to realize that “when we heed our longing, we grow into our swanlike nature.” Many of us in the workplace can relate well to the feeling of being discriminated against for not fitting the mold. Yet, it is within our power to choose to leave bitterness behind and to uproot negativism from our system. Once this is accomplished, we can begin to assert ourselves in order to find out where we belong and how we can best fulfill our purpose.
