Presentation Transcript

PowerPoint Presentation:

A group of scientists placed 5 monkeys in a cage and in the middle, a ladder with bananas on the top.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Every time a monkey went up the ladder, the scientists soaked the rest of the monkeys with cold water.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After a while, every time a monkey went up the ladder, the others beat up the one on the ladder.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After some time, no monkey dare to go up the ladder regardless of the temptation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Scientists then decided to substitute one of the monkeys. The 1 st thing this new monkey did was to go up the ladder. Immediately the other monkeys beat him up.

PowerPoint Presentation:

After several beatings, the new member learned not to climb the ladder even though never knew why.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A 2 nd monkey was substituted and the same occurred. The 1 st monkey participated on the beating for the 2 nd monkey. A 3 rd monkey was changed and the same was repeated (beating). The 4 th was substituted and the beating was repeated and finally the 5 th monkey was replaced.

PowerPoint Presentation:

What was left was a group of 5 monkeys that even though never received a cold shower, continued to beat up any monkey who attempted to climb the ladder.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If it was possible to ask the monkeys why they would beat up all those who attempted to go up the ladder….. I bet you the answer would be…. “I don’t know – that’s how things are done around here” Does it sounds familiar?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Don’t miss the opportunity to share this with others as they might be asking themselves why we continue to do what we are doing if there is a different way out there.
