In this deceptively simple handbook, written in the form of a fable, Spencer Johnson presents strategies for coping with professional and personal change and, in the process, determining the path of true fulfillment. Two mice (Sniff and Scurry) and two little people (Hem and Haw), each with different personalities, navigate their maze, searching for the elusive, ever-changing cheese. Basic lessons become clear as we see the mice successfully reaching their goal, while the people sometimes complicate their lives by overthinking. Chapter titles such as "If You Do Not Change, You Can Become Extinct" and "Noticing Small Changes Early Helps You Adapt to the Bigger Changes That Are to Come" add up to a coherent schema that can help us prepare for and accept change while reducing the stress associated with it. WHO MOVED MY CHEESE remained at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list for over a year, and has been used in staff development seminars at many corporations. Dr. Johnson is also the co-author of the famed business book THE ONE-MINUTE MANAGER.

From one of the world's most recognized experts on management comes a charming parable filled with insights designed to help readers manage change quickly and prevail in changing times.
With Who Moved My Cheese? Dr. Spencer Johnson realizes the need for finding the language and tools to deal with change--an issue that makes all of us nervous and uncomfortable. Most people are fearful of change because they don't believe they have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change. With the approach of the year 2000, most work environments are finally recognizing the urgent need to get their computers and other business systems up to speed and able to deal with unprecedented change. What businesses are only just beginning to realize is that this is not enough: we need to help people get ready, too. Spencer Johnson has created his new book to do just that. The coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager has written a deceptively simple story with a dramatically important message that can radically alter the way we cope with change. Who Moved My Cheese? allows for common themes to become topics for discussion and individual interpretation. Who Moved My Cheese? takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future and shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively.
"Johnson makes a strong case for his book by offering insightful, bite size advice, told by a character who deals with change successfully."
