business day care

We had a dinner party Friday for some friends moving away from London, and one of them described his job as “adult day care”.  He spends a lot of time getting his team to “play nice”.

This expression cracked me up and reminded me of the Robert Fulghum essay, “all I really need to know, I learned in kindergarten.”  I think this applies to what we need to know in business too.

A lot of organizations get caught up in turf wars and bickering silos.  This only seems to get worse when there’s the pressure we’re all feeling in this economic climate.

I ran this idea past my five-year old daughter and she thought it was pretty funny that grown-ups could be “naughty” and end up on the “sad face” list.
