In the episode of “Three Little Beers” (Video) the Stooges need to get into a golf tournament. At the the country club registration desk they are informed that only members of the Press are admitted.
So they go into the Gentleman’s Lounge and come back a few minutes later with their “Press” buttons to show the receptionist.
Here’s their script.
Moe: Press! (shows a press button that is obviously stolen from the sink or toilet)
Larry: Press! (does the same)
Curly: Pull! (shows a “pull” button also from the men’s room then runs to join the others leaving behind a befuddled receptionist!)
When it comes to working with and leading others do you “press” people to get them moving or “pull” them along?
Maybe you’d prefer a third button that would work even better…
Take your pick…or create your own:
Pressure, Persuade, Placate, Please, Promote, Pummel, Put down, Preside, Plan, P________?
Which one will get you past the receptionist and into the leadership club?
Discuss among yourselves… :-)) !
