Four Main Bones in Every Organization

It has been said that there are four main bones in every organization:

  1. The wish-bones:  Wishing somebody would do something about the problem.
  2. The jaw-bones: Doing all the talking but very little else.
  3. The knuckle-bones: Those who knock everything.
  4. The back-bones: Those who carry the brunt of the load and do most of the work.
