Dealing with groups of humans means you have a Pluto.
Big group. Small group. Doesn’t matter.
There is a Pluto in there — somewhere.
And you need to find him (or her) because it could be the secret to your success.
The celestial object Pluto is small, hangs in the back of the pack, has an orbit like no other.
And poor Pluto gets no respect. In fact, in 2006 Pluto was dropped from planet status, and is now officially a “dwarf-planet.”
Pluto has it tough.
Pluto could hold untold secrets of our solar system. After 9 years of waiting, the spacecraft New Horizon has reached Pluto. Data is trickling in to NASA about how special Pluto really is.
And Pluto has fans —as the Guardian posted on their website, “Pluto: the splendid semi-planet with a special place in our hearts.”
Back to Earth, and to you
Well … on your team, in your pile of recruits, at your work, in your family — there is a Pluto.
There is that person:
who isn’t understood
gets little respect
is smaller than the rest
might be an impact player
could hold secrets that opens eyes
possibly a giant just waiting to be called
may be different, but does what is asked
It took us 9 years and almost a billion dollars to get a better understanding of Pluto. Could you afford to spend a little time & energy to find and understand your Pluto?
He or she is there, waiting to be discovered.
