CORD Connects: Dragons, Buddha, and the art of managing up: In which we co-opt Zen Buddhism principles only well enough to understand Dragons (aka our bosses) and the role they play in our lives.
At the end of the presentation the learner will understand, among other things:
1) The difference between a dragons, lions, and those little birds that eat the bugs on their hides.
2) Dragons make rules that make no sense to anyone but the Dragon - these rules are known as "The Way."
3) To a real dragon - there is no you, there is only the dragon. Walking behind them keeps you from being trampled and eaten. It is full of Dragon waste, but it is fertile ground. This is known as "Advancement."
4) As you get closer, you see that the dragon is chained to the Department. The Department is not caring. It has no feelings. It has been there before the dragon and will be there after the Dragon. It has no future and no past, the Department has only now. In the now there is simply the thing to be done, and nothing else. This is known as "Duty."
5) It is the wanting of things that makes us suffer. In the lack of wanting, there is joy and enlightenment. You must neither “care” nor “not-care.” This is known as contentment.
6) You will learn lessons like how to feed the Dragon, water the Dragon, and keep the Dragon from devouring delicious things that turn out to be poisonous.
7) At the end of this talk, you will be able to take the Dragon out of their office and fly it around. You will become a Dragon Master.
