3 Minutes Management Course from my MTN buddy

LESSON 1: A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Mac, the next-door neighbor.  Before she says a word, Mac says, "I'll give you $800.00 to drop that towel." After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Mac. After a few seconds, Mac hands her $800.00 and leaves.The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?""It was Mac the next door neighbor," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "did he say anything about the $800.00 he owes me?"Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure

LESSON 2: A Customer Relationship Officer, an Administrator, and the Manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Spirit comes out. The Spirit says, "I'll give each of you just one wish." "Me first! Me first!" says the Administrator. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."Puff! She's gone."Me next! Me next!" says the Customer Relationship Officer. "I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseur se, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life." Puff! He's gone."OK, you're up," the Spirit says to the Manager. The Manager says, "I want those two back in the Office after lunch." Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say

LESSON 3: An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?" The eagle answered: "Sure, why not."

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

LESSON 4: A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him. Moral of the story: (1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy (2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend (3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!
