Good old lessons in teamwork
from an age-old fable
The Tortoise
The Hare

Once upon a time a tortoise and a
hare had an argument about who
was faster.
That’s not true.
The fastest runner is
I’m the fastest

They decided to settle
the argument with a race.
They agreed on a route
and started off the race.


Ok, let’s have
a race.

The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for
some time. Then seeing that he was far
ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit
under a tree for some time and relax
before continuing the race.
Poor guy! Even if I
take a nap, he
could not catch up
with me.

He sat under the tree and soon fell

The tortoise plodding on overtook
him and soon finished the race,
emerging as the undisputed

The hare woke up and realized that he'd
lost the race.

The moral of the story is that slow and steady
wins the race.
This is the version of the story that we've all
grown up with.

The story continues …

The hare was disappointed
at losing the race and he
did some soul-searching.
He realized that he'd lost
the race only because he
had been overconfident,
careless and lax. If he had
not taken things for
granted, there's no way the
tortoise could have beaten

Why did
I lose

So he challenged the
tortoise to another race.
The tortoise agreed.


Can we have
another race?

This time, the hare went all
out and ran without stopping
from start to finish. He won by
several miles.

The moral of the story?
Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and
steady. If you have two people in your organization,
one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast
and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable
chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder
faster than the slow, methodical chap.
It's good to be slow and steady; but it's better to be
fast and reliable.

But the story doesn't end here …

The tortoise did some thinking
this time, and realized that there's
no way he can beat the hare in a
race the way it was currently

How can
I can
win the

He thought for a while,
and then challenged
the hare to another
race, but on a slightly
different route.
The hare agreed.

Can we have another
race? This time we’ll go
through a different route.


They started off. In keeping with
his self-made commitment to be
consistently fast, the hare took off
and ran at top speed until he came
to a broad river. The finishing
line was a couple of kilometers
