It's a fine sunny day in the forest and a rabbit is

sitting outside his

burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a

fox, out for a

walk.

Fox: "What are you working on?"

Rabbit: "My thesis."

Fox: "Hmm... What is it about?"

Rabbit: "Oh, I'm writing about how rabbits eat foxes."

Fox: "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that rabbits

don't eat foxes!"

Rabbit: "Come with me and I'll show you!"

They both disappear into the rabbit's burrow. After

few minutes,

gnawing

on a fox bone, the rabbit returns to his typewriter

and resumes typing.

Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the

hardworking rabbit.

Wolf: "What's that you are writing?" Rabbit: "I'm

doing a thesis on how

rabbits eat wolves."

Wolf: "you don't expect to get such rubbish published,

do you?"

Rabbit: "No problem. Do you want to see why?"

The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again

the rabbit returns

by himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to

typing.

Finally a bear comes along and asks, "What are you

doing?

Rabbit: "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat bears."

Bear: "Well that's absurd! "

Rabbit: "Come into my home and I'll show you"

Scene: As they enter the! Burrow, the rabbit

introduces the bear to the

lion.

Moral:

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW SILLY YOUR THESIS TOPIC IS; WHAT

MATTERS IS WHOM

YOU HAVE AS

A SUPERVISOR.

Management Lesson

In the context of the working world:

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW BAD YOUR PERFORMANCE IS; WHAT

MATTERS IS

WHETHER YOUR

BOSS LIKES YOU OR NOT...

Sri

really a good story...its really matter a lot whether you are in good books of your BOSS or not. Deepa
Thanks Sreedevi.
Your story was wonderful.
I guess it is really true in current world.
One who blindly obeys the orders of the superiors are rated the best.
True performance many a time goes un acknowledged.

Thanks Sri !! Really good. It is more often the boss's ability which determines one's career prospects. Another important one is what u are perceived to be in the organisation. So image building + Lion boss u r likely to be numero uno :!: !: KK Nair
I totally agree with what everyone has said in the earlier posts. Our boss matters more than anything....so the big problem is that why are there so many bad bosses?
As HR people we should be interested in these issues because it affects employee performance. It is a must that everyone reads this research paper: "why your boss is programmed to be a dictator" (it's available free to download at www.changethis.com). You will learn a lot from reading it...and if you are a boss yourself, it will really challenge your thinking.

This was interesting, indeed.
This also may be true upto a certain extent (in the present working world).
But this need not be true always.
The issue is GOOD BOSSES sometimes HAVE TO allow poor folks under him / her to become BIG BOSSES. That's the problem :)
How do you perceive this problem, folks?

Hi Ashwini,
I don't think anyone should HAVE to allow bad people to become bosses....the risk to the organization is too great.
I mean, think about what happened with NASA - two space shuttles crashed, all because bosses didn't want to listen to their subordinate engineers. Would you be willing to take such a risk with your organization?
I think that we all still suffer from a 'boss is king' mindset, even if we don't like our boss. We just believe that's the way life is, and that we can't change it.
If I was a NASA astronaut, I would refuse to fly until NASA changed its organization structure to one at least resembling the one that the author proposes. Put it this way: knowing what you do (assuming you read the article), would you let your loved one fly on a shuttle mission?
