Don’t be too clever…!


What behaviours do you expect from your team?
Do you make an assumption that they operate in an ethical, methodical and personable manner to reach the organisational goals.
The butcher story
A butcher, who had had a particularly good day, proudly flipped his last chicken on a scale and weighed it. “That will be £6.35,” he told the customer. “That’s a good price, but it really is a little too small,” said the woman. “Don’t you have anything larger?” Hesitating, but thinking fast, the clerk returned the chicken to the refrigerator, paused a moment, then took it out again. “This one,” he said faintly, ” will be £6.65.” The woman paused for a moment, then made her decision… “I know what,” she said, “I’ll take both of them!”
