Funny story. one clarifying point. in lion kingdom, the king stays with the pack and does not blame others for failures.

Other Gender

Your picture is representative of the real animal world. Lioness are major contributor for achieving the goal aka kill. Lion just walks in for the meal.
Time you recognize the diversity of animal kingdom and the talent, contributions and initiative of the other gender. LOL

Great analogy with lot of humor. Good Friday.

In the fields of Silicon Valley, all employees/animals get benefits such as stock options, annual raise, retirement plans; big lions, small ones and other inhabitants of the kingdom. so that regards our kingdom different.

To TEK
in corporate hiearchy, the lower levels get only left overs, not the main meal. How many times you know of a higher level person, letting go his raise, stocks to the lower levels? There are a few, and I mean rarely, where it has happened.

Be aware that the amount the highers get is obsenely, no comparison to what Lions get.

Aside from the dinner analogy in the restaurant at the end, that was rather depressing statement on the human race
True but depressing

What a great analogy comparing corporate with wild world !
I think at basic level all humans are still striving for survival. Just how far you can extend your ability to predict the future.
This is a great lesson for me as I have no experience with corporate world and good to know the underlying mechanism of how things work so I won't get surprised when things go south.

Real life story said in a fun way :)

Few years ago my family took a Safari trip, which we witnessed the lions hunt and fight for their shares of the killed, exactly like the story described. However, we also witnessed a group of elephants, big and small, surrounding a dying older elephants. Well, a leader of a company can create a culture such that his/her company behave like a lion kingdom or an elephant family.

Good story; sadly, that happens in the competitive corporate world. I liked the funny ending.

"So like any good lion, I reached to the middle of the table, stuck my fork into the juiciest part of the dish and took my share."
- Epic finish to the story. Thought provoking.
