The View at the Front of the Wagon – a Business Haiku

The Square Wheels wagon rolls forward. Not smoothly, but it rolls…

Square Wheels One - Can I hear a thump thump

There are all sorts of issues and frameworks and anchors to how things really work, but this one should help explain a bit about the issues around engagement and motivation:

With this as your view, and the isolation of the thumps and bumps by the rope being used to pull, is it any wonder why issues of motivation and engagement might exist and why some managers just do not seem to have a clue? The key is to step back from the wagon and take a look at how things are really working. It can be done and things can be fixed!

For the FUN of It!
