Agile organizations. And traits of great leadership.
Originally that was the plan — I was going to write about men and women in a leadership role.
And in cross-functional teams.
All that went poof (technical term : ) when I accidentally came across some really good paraprosdokians.
For those of you not familiar with them: they are figures of speech widely used by comedians.
(Incidentally, Winston Churchill also used them frequently.
Attributed to him:
“A modest man, who has much to be modest about.”)
The origin of the word paraprosdokian is Greek:
παρά (“against”) and προσδοκία (“expectation”)
“If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong” is one I like.
(My friends would say I like this one a lot.)
But here it’s my favorite:
“Women will never be equal to men
until they can walk down the street
with a bald head and a beer gut,
and still think they are sexy.”
I couldn’t agree more : )
Thanks for visiting.
