Who’s Your Rowing Crew Pluto?


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.”

So what?

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

Yet, he:

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.
