In C-Suite – The Aesop’s Fables – a short Series.

Aesop’s fables

Aesop’s Fables are great stories and analogies for training and communications in General Management and very relevant In C-Suites.

Aesop’s Fables date from the 6th century BC.  Aesop was supposedly a Phrygian slave, and met his end when thrown over a cliff at Delphi for being ugly and deformed.  Whatever the story of Aesop, the fables that bear his name (Aesop collected the fables, he didn’t write them) contain timeless lessons.
Aesop’s Fables also gave rise to and reflect many of today’s expressions and cliches.
Aesop’s Fables total more than 300. Here is presenting to you a short series of  best of Aesop’s Fables.
Whatever people may say, Boss Bashing is Universally popular Corporate Sport (?) and can not die a Death.   When not a boss, I confess having indulged in it, When I became a boss – those in the peer group still indulged in it and I was an active partner;  (although, there was a greater secrecy).  I know that,  In C-Suite usually the BOD or the Chairman especially the NED’s who ask tough questions are the target of boss-bashing which is again a favourite Corporate Sport, sometimes played offline on Golf  Courses or while playing Cards. But to criticise and make fun of people ‘Especially’ behind their back is So much Fun ! 🙂

The Story of Belly and the members (also known as quarrel between the body parts)

One day the various parts (Aesop says ‘members’) of the human body, including the brain, arms, legs, eyes, feet, hands, lungs, etc., got together to discuss the body’s belly and what they thought about its contribution to the group efforts on behalf of the body.
The body parts were all unhappy and resentful for various reasons, and chose to target their collective anxieties at the belly, in a rather bullying way. The unhappy body parts decided that the belly was not doing enough towards maintaining the body’s operations, and accused the belly of spending its time lazily consuming food and allowing other members to do all the work. “We have decided that we will no longer do what we need to do in order to feed you,” they said to the belly, “Because you do nothing to help us, and you are lazy and unproductive.”
And they stopped feeding the belly.   The belly soon starved.    But then so did the body and all of its parts starve too.   The unhappy body parts now realized – too late unfortunately to save themselves and the body – that although the belly seemed to be doing nothing, it had in fact been fulfilling a vital function necessary for the wellbeing of the body and all of its parts.
Moral: Very Often group efforts include certain members whose contributions may seem inconsequential or less valuable than others, and whose behaviours may seem different and less worthy than other louder more obvious contributors, ( for e.g. Sales People) but it is not generally such a simple matter.
Group dynamics are complex, and it is easy to misinterpret and undervalue other members’ efforts when we do not understand the entire situation, and particularly when we do not understand how individual members might be crucial to overall teamwork and results.
When we target and victimise group members we weaken the group, and all of its members.
