three part management course: lesson 2 - getting to the top

A turkey was chatting with a bull: "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" the bull replied. "They're packed with nutrients." the turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally, after a fourth night, there he was, proudly perched at the top of the tree.

Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Management Lesson 2: bullsh*t might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there

  1. Another great lesson.

    Which illustrates the fact that one should "....practise what you preach....".

    Refer to here, for a real-time current example.
