There's a Hole in My Bucket
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole. Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry, Then fix it, dear Henry Dear Henry, fix it
I’m sure we all remember this children’s song based on a story about a leaking bucket. Henry and LIza talk all about how the bucket can be fixed. Unfortunately the final answer they come up with is that the bucket needs water to fix it. The one thing Henry seemingly can't get - as there is 'a hole in his bucket'.
At work, how often do you see Henry and Liza? Employees exhibiting a feeling of hopelessness. You hear dangerous statements like “it is just the way it works around here”, “there’s only one option”…. “but”….. “if”…”it’s not my fault", "they"….
Imagine if you could increase the hope and resilience of your people and the conversations you heard changed to..'we' & 'and'. For example, we provide low cost and high service. We focus on the task and the people. We focus on quality and service. We work together, have fun and deliver to our strategic goals. We know where we’re heading and we’re working towards our common goals.
If your team or organisation need help in building resilience or accessing new tools to fix the bucket list of ‘issues’ they feel they are being faced with. Contact us and we will work with you to help fix the holes, close the skill gap and increase your organisations toolbox.
