Bill’s Breakfast

My friend, Bill is a manager of a company that has a monthly quota of tasks to fill. When the goal is achieved, Bill cooks all staff a Saturday morning breakfast.

The result is very positive – the staff are focused on achieving targets, the owners are happy because the target is met, Bill has got the best out of his staff and everyone gets to enjoy a tasty breakfast cooked by the boss.

The breakfast is on a Saturday, no time away from the work, and there is no impact on reaching the next month’s target. They all come together to enjoy a companionable social break after achieving a big task, no work pressures hover, and it reinforces the desire to achieve again and enjoy more of the same.

As well as the recipe for a delicious breakfast, the important aspect is the recipe for success through teamwork, mutual respect and reward.
