Dear colleagues,

Once, a man’s hands, feet, mouth and brain all began to rebel against his stomach. They felt that the stomach enjoyed all the food the man swallowed and did nothing in turn.

The hand worked all day long, sawing, hammering, lifting, carrying and by evening they were covered with blisters and scratches. The feet walked back and forth all day long and become sore by evening. The mouth worked hard to chew all the man ate, but the selfish stomach sucked them all immediately. The brain had a grouse that it had to constantly think and devise ways to get every next meal.

One by one the parts of the body joined the complaint against the stomach, but the stomach didn't say anything; it was completely de-motivated and eventually stopped working. At first the stomach growled a bit, as it always did when it was hungry; but after a while it was quiet. 

Very soon, the hands became weak to do lifting and carrying. The feet could not walk. The mouth had no desire to chew or swallow a single bite. The brain became dull. And the man suddenly began to feel rather ill. As each day passed, the man felt worse and worse. He was worried; he started making enquiries in his own way. Finally the man’s heart told him in a faint voice what had happened to the stomach.

He immediately understood the situation and called a meeting of all body-parts. He explained: - “All are equally important in our system irrespective of whether their output is tangible or intangible. You all know the importance of stomach. If it stops working, everyone suffers. It is the same case with everyone of you! Cheer up! And give a big hand to Stomach!! 

The man filled his stomach at breakfast, telling the body parts once again “Either we all work together or nothing works at all." 


- Build friendships with other people. Make a cohesive team

- Find things in common. When you ask them to do something for you, they will feel as if they are doing it for themselves.

- Help each member of the team to realize how important his own role in the team is.
