Tales you may have heard before

by on Jan.23, 2013, under What I'm reading


This short story format collection of stories told by seasoned teacher Juan Mateo aspires on teaching you a thing or two you may find helpful in your professional career on subjects such as teamwork, creativity and leadership. What strikes me as odd is the author’s ability (or creativity?) to draw the conclusion he does from the stories he tells. This may be a cultural thing, but there obviously is nothing wrong with Mr Mateo’s imagination and its ability to tweak these stories’ morale (some of them are legend and you have probably heard atleast one or two before, be it in another context) into something different than what the reader may conclude. I found myself drawing completely different conclusions on a number of these stories… Inspiration for professional success? Yes! Lessons for professional success? No!

Tales My Boss Never Told Me – Lessons And Inspiration For Professional Success by Juan Mateo (2011). Pan Books. ISBN 1907794026.
