Valuable Management Lessons Everyone Should Know

Lesson 1:

A sales rep, an administrator clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out.

“I’ll give each of you just one wish,’ the genie says.

‘Me first! Me first!’ says the admin clerk. ‘I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboard, without a care in the world.’

Puff! He’s gone.

‘Me next! Me next!’ says the sales rep. ‘I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of cocktails and the love of my life.’

Puff! He’s gone.

‘Okay, you’re up!’ the Genie says to the manager.

The manager says, ‘I want those two back in the office after lunch.’

Moral of the story:

Always let your boss have the first say.


Lesson 2:

An eagle is sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, ‘Can I also sit like you and do nothing?’

The eagle answered: ‘Sure, why not.’

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:

To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.


Lesson 3:

A man is getting into the shower just as the door bell rings.

His son quickly runs downstairs to open the door. When he opens, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.

Before the son says a word, Bob says, ‘I will give you $800 to clean my shoes, as they are very dirty.’

After thinking for a moment, the son bows down to clean Bob’s shoes. As promised, Bob hands him $800 and leaves.

When the dad came out of the bathroom, he asked his son, ‘Who was that?’

‘It was Bob, the next door neighbor,’ he replies.

‘Great,’ the dad says, ‘did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?’

Moral of the story:

If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable unfavorable events.


Lesson 4:

A priest offered a Nun a lift.

She got in the car and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg a bit.

The priest nearly had an accident.

After controlling the car, he attempted to put his hand on her leg.

The nun said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’

The priest apologized ‘Sorry sister, but the flesh is weak.’

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on the way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look Psalm 129. It said, ‘Go forth and seek, you will find glory.’

Moral of the story:

If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
