#More Than Books: The Little Unicorn by Catrin Lewis
"A better place for all, a better place to be."
I love stories since I was a little girl.
I think they have the capacity to encourage and inspire us in so many ways.
There are stories that had a deep impact in my life and I cannot keep them for myself.
Do you have similar books you HAVE to share with us?
First book, last book by Catalin Bursaci: the story of a talented boy who fights cancer with all his being while writing his first and last book
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho: the story of a young shepherd and his journey to the pyramids of Egypt
Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach: a story about courageous people who dare to be different
Inspired by my LinkedIn Community, I stumbled across a story that I would like to share with you.
This is not a fairy tale, but a story from the workplace.
In the Beautiful Kingdom of Culture there is a creative little unicorn in charge of internal communication.
She has a magic horn for picking up stories, supersonic hearing to filter out the rubbish and a beautiful smile on her face that welcomes feedback and change.
She lives happy in her little bubble until one day she is told about a wild place called the "Disengagement Danger zone" where creatures are unhappy, sad and suffering in the dark.
She immediately wants to go there and help and here it's where we are taken on a journey populated with fantastic characters and unique conversations.
While reading this story, I was fascinated with the message that was there right in front of my eyes:
Without transparency and honesty in the workplace, we transform ourselves into these creatures who don't evolve, who are scared and who are unhappy.
We need unicorns to wake us up and remind us of our values, principles and creativity.
So cherish yours and don't let them fade away!
Read this book and share it with your colleagues, managers and your local libraries.
Let's keep these unicorns alive every day!
