10,000 Words Part Five: Parable

Once there was a wise sultan. He sent his trusted vizier to find a blind beggar, a beautiful courtesan and a mighty elephant. They all sat around drinking wine and playing Connect Four (except for the elephant, who was more of a Scrabble girl.) They learned nothing of note. No pithy and instructive (if sexist, racist and ableist) homilies were created.
And for this reason, they were never included on any corporate teambuilding presentations. Their experiences were never chronicled via clipart. They contributed nothing whatsoever to company productivity. But they didn’t give a shit about being a corporate training tool.
