Things that Make You Go Hmm?

CONFIDENTIAL TO: Jesus, Son of Joseph Woodcrafters Carpenter Shop Nazareth 25922 From: Jordan Leadership Consultants Jerusalem 26544 Dear Sir: Thank you for submitting the resumes of the twelve men you’ve picked for leadership positions in your new organization. All of them have now taken our battery of tests, we’ve processed the results through our software system, and we’ve also had personal interviews conducted for each of them with our psychologist and vocational aptitude consultants. The profiles for all individuals are included and you’ll want to study them carefully. As part of our service and for your guidance, we’ve provided some general comments, much as an auditor might include. This is provided as a result of staff consultations and comes with no additional fee. It’s the opinion of staff that most of your nominees are lacking in background, educational and vocational aptitude for the type of enterprise you’re undertaking. They really have no concept of team and we would recommend that you continue your search for persons of experience, leadership ability and a proven track record of success. Simon Peter is emotionally unstable and given to fits of temper. Andrew exhibits absolutely no leadership qualities of any kind. The two brothers, James and John (sons of Zebedee), place personal interest above team commitment. Thomas demonstrates a questioning attitude that would tend to undermine morale. We feel it is also our responsibility to tell you that Matthew has been blacklisted by the Greater Jerusalem Better Business Bureau. James (son of Alphaeus) and Thaddaeus definitely have radical leanings and they both registered very high on the manic-depressive scale. One of the candidates, however, has great promise. He’s a person of ability and resourcefulness, interacts well with others, has a keen mind for leadership and is well connected in your network. He’s also highly motivated, ambitious and responsible. We recommend Judas Iscariot as your number one candidate and right-hand designate. All of the other profiles are self explanatory. We wish you every success with your new venture. Sincerely, Jordan Leadership Consultants Regardless of your belief mindset, a study of historically affirmed records would indicate that each one chosen fulfilled a specific and clearly identified role in the master plan. Worldwide there are 2 Billion+ people on the planet that identify as Christian Believers! Truth Be Told, the only 100% accurate predictors of success are value-driven results! Unfortunately, they don’t always manifest themselves until after you’ve made your choice, so choose wisely and with a fit for your master plan in mind.
