Sharing Fiscal Infomation

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.

The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.

Before she says a word, Bob says, ‘I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.’

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.

The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ‘Who was that?’

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

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

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

Negotiation & Persuation

Someone sent me this, and i quote verbatim:

Dr. chris asoluka, ever an interesting person, told a story which illustrates the nigerian condition and vividly depicts why many now walk away from ‘Omelas’ -do well.

According to asoluka, a pastor was driving on an inter-state road when he met a team of policemen who, quite naturally, wanted ‘something’ from him. Since he was not prepared to play their games, they asked for his papers and having combed through everything without any offence with which to nail the ‘stubborn’ pastor, they now asked him to open the bonnet of his car. A careful scrutiny of the engine number against what was on paper revealed that letter U was written in such a way that it could be mistaken for letter V.

that was all the officer-in-charge needed to shout “stolen vehicle”! sensing trouble, even when he knew he committed no offense, the pastor called the OC to say he was a priest to which the officer replied: “please, leave that pastor thing…in any case, if you are indeed a pastor, then you must have a Bible in your car, bring it. the pastor did as was commanded after which the officer now ordered: “please read Matthew 5:25, 26 to me”. the incredulous pastor opened to the recommended passage and read:

“settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to a judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. i tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

Not to castigate the nigerian police (or police of any other nationality), but I am sure you see the point. The policeman knew how to persuade to get what he wants.

The story (or fable) does not say how the pastor responded or how the story ended, but can you push and or otherwise persuade your opposition to let you have what you want?

The Manager

I was given that the manager is a person who handles complexity.

In my opinion, one of the key attributes of a manager must be the ability to break up such comlexities into simpler and easier to manage tasks, and to assign these tasks in such a way as to achieve objectives.

This way, devoting to a job need not be all comsuming. The better manager can find time to to engage in more than one pursuit.

You generally perform better when you enjoy your job, and you enjoy your job when you manage it well.
