Thanksgiving Day Poems on Performance and Teamwork

It was suggested to me to expand my illustration and poem collection to add some followup poems on performance and teamwork around the notion of Turkey Day and Thanksgiving, so I have been playing around with some of those ideas.

The key is to understand that the poems are meant to be simple reminders about some of the learning lessons from our play of The Search for The Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine or from sessions involving the Square Wheels notions of people and performance and the need for continuous continuous improvement to make things work more efficiently. Both of these products work to involve and engage people, and the idea of doing some simple followup reminders seems to be a good one.

So, I thought to share some simple illustrations. If you want to use them, or slightly modify or similar, just connect with me. I have a dozen or so. Here are a few. You can download the whole file by clicking on any of the images — I linked them all to the download page for the powerpoint master file.
