The tortoise and the hare

  1. Good old lessons in teamwork
    from an age-old fable
    The Tortoise And The Hare
  2. Once upon a time a tortoise and a
    hare had an argument about who was
    faster.
    I’m the fastest
    runner.
    That’s not true.
    The fastest runner is
    me!
  3. Ok, let’s have
    a race.
    Fine!They decided to settle the
    argument with a race. They
    agreed on a route and
    started off the race.
  4. The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time.
    Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise,
    he thought he’d sit under a tree for some time and
    relax before continuing the race.
    Poor guy! Even if I take
    a nap, he could not
    catch up with me.
  5. He sat under the tree and soon fell
    asleep.
  6. The tortoise plodding on overtook him and
    soon finished the race, emerging as the
    undisputed champ.
  7. The hare woke up and realized that
    he’d lost the race.
  8. The moral of the story is that
    slow and steady wins the race.
    This is the version of the story that we
    all are grown up with.
  9. The story continues …
  10. The hare was disappointed at
    losing the race and he did
    some soul-searching. He
    realized that he’d lost the race
    only because he had been
    overconfident, careless and
    lax. If he had not taken things
    for granted, there’s no way the
    tortoise could have beaten him.
    Why did I
    lose the
    race?
  11. Can we have
    another race?
    Ok.
    So he challenged the
    tortoise to another
    race. The tortoise
    agreed.
  12. This time, the hare went all out and ran
    without stopping from start to finish. He
    won by several miles.
  13. The moral of the story?
    Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and
    steady. If you have two people in your organization,
    one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast
    and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable
    chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder
    faster than the slow, methodical chap.
    It’s good to be slow and steady; but it’s better to be
    fast and reliable.
  14. But the story doesn’t end here …
  15. The tortoise did some thinking this
    time, and realized that there’s no way
    he can beat the hare in a race the way
    it was currently formatted.
    How can
    I win the
    race?
  16. He thought for a while,
    and then challenged
    the hare to another
    race, but on a slightly
    different route.
    The hare agreed.
    Sure!
    Can we have another race?
    This time we’ll go through a
    different route.
  17. They started off. In keeping with his self-made
    commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and
    ran at top speed until he came to a broad river. The
    finishing line was a couple of kilometers on the other side
    of the river.
    Goal
  18. The hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the
    tortoise trundled along, got into the river, swam to the opposite
    bank, continued walking and finished the race.
    What
    should I
    do?
  19. The moral of the story?
    First identify your core competency and then change the
    playing field to suit your core competency.
    In an organization, if you are a good speaker, make sure you
    create opportunities to give presentations that enable the
    senior management to notice you.
    If your strength is analysis, make sure you do some sort of
    research, make a report and send it upstairs.
    Working to your strengths will not only get you noticed, but will
    also create opportunities for growth and advancement.
  20. The story still hasn’t ended …
  21. The hare and the tortoise, by this time,
    had become pretty good friends and
    they did some thinking together. Both
    realized that the last race could have
    been run much better.
  22. So they decided to do
    the last race again, but
    to run as a team this
    time. Hi, buddy. How
    about doing our last
    race again?
    Great! I think we could
    do it much better, if we
    two help each other.
    Hi, buddy. How
    about doing our last
    race again?
  23. They started off, and this time the hare
    carried the tortoise till the riverbank.
  24. There, the tortoise took over and swam
    across with the hare on his back.
  25. On the opposite bank, the hare again carried the tortoise
    and they reached the finishing line together. They both felt
    a greater sense of satisfaction than they’d felt earlier.
  26. The moral of the story?
    It’s good to be individually brilliant and to have strong
    core competencies; but unless you’re able to work in a
    team and harness each other’s core competencies,
    you’ll always perform below par because there will
    always be situations at which you’ll do poorly and
    someone else does well.
    Teamwork is mainly about situational leadership, letting
    the person with the relevant core competency for a
    situation take leadership.
  27. There are more lessons to be learnt from this story.
    Note that neither the hare nor the tortoise gave up after failures.
    The hare decided to work harder and put in more effort after his
    failure. The tortoise changed his strategy because he was already
    working as hard as he could.
    In life, when faced with failure, sometimes it is appropriate to work
    harder and put in more effort. Sometimes it is appropriate to change
    strategy and try something different. And sometimes it is
    appropriate to do both.
    The hare and the tortoise also learnt another vital lesson. When we
    stop competing against a rival and instead start competing against
    the situation, we perform far better.
  28. • Never give up when faced with failure
    • Fast and consistent will always beat slow and
    steady
    • Work to your competencies
    • Compete against the situation, not against a rival.
    • Pooling resources and working as a team will
    always beat individual performers
    To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise
    teaches us many things:
  29. Let’s go and build stronger teams!

      The Tortoise and the Hare Parable

      The Tortoise and the Hare Parable reveals the kaizen approach — when big results are achieved through frequent small improvements submitted by company employees.

      Once upon a time, the Tortoise and the Hare were arguing about which of them is faster. They decided to settle the dispute in a contest. They agreed on the track, and the race began. The hare started first and ran briskly for some time. Then, seeing that the Turtle was far away, he thought that he could sit under a tree for a while and rest before continuing the race. He sat down under a tree and soon fell asleep. The wandering Turtle reached the place where the Hare slept, and then finished the race, becoming the undisputed winner. The hare woke up and realized that he lost the competition.
      Moral: The one who is slow and stable wins the competition.
      This is a version of the story that was read to us as children.

      The hare was upset about losing the competition, but he wondered why this happened. He realized that he only lost the competition because he was presumptuous, careless and lethargic. If he didn’t take things for granted, then the Turtle would have no chance of defeating him. So he again challenged the Turtle to the competition. The turtle agreed. This time the Hare did his best and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won several miles.
      Moral: Fast and consistent will always win over slow and stable. It’s good to be slow and stable, but it’s better to be fast and reliable.

      This time the Turtle thought and realized that she had no chance of beating the Hare in the competition on this track. She thought, and then again challenged the Hare to the competition, but on a different track. The hare agreed. They started. In accordance with his own conclusion to be fast, the Hare started the race and ran at great speed until he came to a wide river. The finish line was a couple of kilometers on the other side of the river. The hare sat there, wondering what to do. In the meantime, the Turtle rolled off the bank, entered the river, swam across to the other side, continued on and finished the race.
      Morale: first determine your basic abilities and then change the rules of the game to use your basic abilities.

      Hare and Tortoise, by now good friends, made some conclusions together. They both realized that the last competition could be done much better. So they decided to run the last competition again, but this time to run as a team. They started, but now the Hare was carrying the Turtle to the river bank. Here the Turtle stepped forward and swam across the river with the Hare on its back. On the opposite bank, the Hare carried the Turtle again and they reached the finish line together. They both felt much more satisfied than they had felt before.
      Moral: it’s good to be individually brilliant and have abilities; but if you are not able to work in a team and use each other’s basic abilities, then you will always represent bottom parity, because there will always be situations in which you will do poorly and someone else will do better.

      Teamwork is mainly situational leadership, allowing a person with the appropriate basic abilities to take the lead according to the situation.
