” Tiger in the Toilet ” !!!

 

 

*Kaizen Story: Tiger in the Toilet*

Once a stranded Tiger entered the washroom of a Corporate Office and hid in a dark corner. Since there were people outside the washroom throughout the day, the Tiger was afraid to come out.

Many people frequented the washroom, but the frightened Tiger didn’t touch anyone. However, after four days it couldn’t bear hunger anymore, so it caught a man who had come in, and ate him.

This man happened to be an Assistant General Manager in the organization, but nobody noticed his disappearance.

Since nothing untoward happened, the Tiger became bolder and after two days caught another man and ate him.

This man was the General Manager of the organization.

Still, nobody was worried over his disappearance (Some people were even happy that he was not seen in the office).

Next day, the Tiger caught the Vice President who was a terror in the organization. Again nothing happened.

The Tiger was very happy and thought that this was the perfect place for him to live.

The very next day the happy Tiger tried to catch a man who had entered the washroom while balancing a tray of teacups in one hand.

The frightened man fell unconscious. Within fifteen minutes a huge hue and cry ensued, and everyone in the office started looking for the man. The search team reached the washroom, flushed out the Tiger and saved the unconscious man. He was the tea boy in the office.

*Moral of the Story*

It is not the position, but our usefulness to others that makes us lovable and respectable. If your subordinates are happy in your absence that means you are not a perfect leader.
