Action Points…

I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

So Matt has finished the poem he wrote for me. (Backstory here) He wrote it after we shared some of our prejudices about organisations. Needless to say I love it!

Here it is. And you can hear Matt reading it on mp3. I’m now supposed to respond to Matt in some manner of my choosing… that may take a little reflection…

Action Points

The Children of Israel

Were in the desert.

They cried out unto me

Beseeching me for a display of

My level five leadership.

Have I not given them manna from heaven?

And quails and bread and sweet water

And drinks with nibbles

After each quarterly update?

Have I not delivered them

From bondage in Eygpt

And offered them a Land

Of milk and honey and share options

Set at a reasonable strike price?

Truly they are a stiff-necked people

but I am the Lord their CEO

and employee engagement

is a key focus area this fiscal.

I summoned my COO to the Mount Sinai off-site For forty days and forty nights.

Amid the fire and the smoke

And the golfing,

I gave him my laws

And bade him formulate

A training plan.

I bade him write ten action points

On 2 slides of powerpoint

With handouts carved in stone.

Everything will now be right.

My COO returned to the Mount of flame

And team-building trust exercises

And told me of a golden calf

That stood without

The strategic plan.

The Children of Israel are many

And in need of rightsizing.
