Good old lessons in teamwork
from an age-old fable
The Tortoise
And
The Hare
Once upon a time a tortoise and a
hare had an argument about who
was faster.
That’s not true.
The fastest runner is
me!
I’m the fastest
runner.
They decided to settle
the argument with a race.
They agreed on a route
and started off the race.

Fine!

Ok, let’s have
a race.
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.
He sat under the tree and soon fell
asleep.
The tortoise plodding on overtook
him and soon finished the race,
emerging as the undisputed
champ.
The hare woke up and realized that he'd
lost the race.
The moral of the story is that slow and steady
wins the race.
This is the version of the story that we've all
grown up with.
The story continues …
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?
So he challenged the
tortoise to another race.
The tortoise agreed.

Ok.

Can we have
another race?
This time, the hare went all
out and ran without stopping
from start to finish. He won by
several miles.
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.
But the story doesn't end here …
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 can
win the
hare?
He thought for a while,
and then challenged
the hare to another
race, but on a slightly
different route.
The hare agreed.

Can we have another
race? This time we’ll go
through a different route.

Sure!
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
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?
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.
The story still hasn't ended …
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.
So they decided to do the
last race again, but to run
as a team this time.

Great! I think we
could do it much
better, if we two
help each other.

Hi, buddy. How
about doing our last
race again?
They started off, and this time the
hare carried the tortoise till the
riverbank.
There, the tortoise took over and
swam across with the hare on his
back.
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.
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.
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.
When Roberto Goizueta took over as CEO of Coca-Cola in
the 1980s, he was faced with intense competition from Pepsi
that was eating into Coke's growth. His executives were
Pepsi-focused and intent on increasing market share 0.1 per
cent a time.
Roberto decided to stop competing against Pepsi and instead
compete against the situation of 0.1 per cent growth.
He asked his executives what was the average fluid intake of
an American per day? The answer was 14 ounces. What was
Coke's share of that? Two ounces. Roberto said Coke needed
a larger share of that market. The competition wasn't Pepsi. It
was the water, tea, coffee, milk and fruit juices that went into
the remaining 12 ounces. The public should reach for a Coke
whenever they felt like drinking something.
To this end, Coke put up vending machines at every street
corner. Sales took a quantum jump and Pepsi has never quite
caught up since.
To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise
teaches us many things:
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
Let’s go and build stronger teams!

Teamwork

  • 2. Good old lessons in teamwork from an age-old fable The Tortoise And The Hare
  • 3. Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. That’s not true. The fastest runner is me! I’m the fastest runner.
  • 4. They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race. Fine! Ok, let’s have a race.
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep.
  • 7. The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ.
  • 8. The hare woke up and realized that he'd lost the race.
  • 9. The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. This is the version of the story that we've all grown up with.
  • 11. 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?
  • 12. So he challenged the tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed. Ok. Can we have another race?
  • 13. This time, the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won by several miles.
  • 14. 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.
  • 15. But the story doesn't end here …
  • 16. 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 can win the hare?
  • 17. He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed. Can we have another race? This time we’ll go through a different route. Sure!
  • 18. 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
  • 19. 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?
  • 20. 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.
  • 21. The story still hasn't ended …
  • 22. 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.
  • 23. So they decided to do the last race again, but to run as a team this time. Great! I think we could do it much better, if we two help each other. Hi, buddy. How about doing our last race again?
  • 24. They started off, and this time the hare carried the tortoise till the riverbank.
  • 25. There, the tortoise took over and swam across with the hare on his back.
  • 26. 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.
  • 27. 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.
  • 28. 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.
  • 29. When Roberto Goizueta took over as CEO of Coca-Cola in the 1980s, he was faced with intense competition from Pepsi that was eating into Coke's growth. His executives were Pepsi-focused and intent on increasing market share 0.1 per cent a time. Roberto decided to stop competing against Pepsi and instead compete against the situation of 0.1 per cent growth.
  • 30. He asked his executives what was the average fluid intake of an American per day? The answer was 14 ounces. What was Coke's share of that? Two ounces. Roberto said Coke needed a larger share of that market. The competition wasn't Pepsi. It was the water, tea, coffee, milk and fruit juices that went into the remaining 12 ounces. The public should reach for a Coke whenever they felt like drinking something. To this end, Coke put up vending machines at every street corner. Sales took a quantum jump and Pepsi has never quite caught up since.
  • 31. To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise teaches us many things: 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
  • 32. Let’s go and build stronger teams!
