Imagine you are the social director on the Titanic - the largest ocean going liner to sail the seas. You have some of the world's greatest celebrities on on board. The boss has told you money is no object - these passengers will be the ambassadors for the line. They can make us or break us - so keep them happy at any price...
Half way through the eight course dinner, while Leonardo di Caprio is trying to figure out which fork to use (you know the scene?), you hear the awful news from an officer on the bridge (confidentially, of course) that the unsinkable has experienced the unthinkable - had a close encounter with an iceberg and freezing water is pouring though a gash in the vessel at an alarming rate.
- What are your choices and how would you react?
- How would you want to be remembered in history?
- What do you need to know and understand to help you make your decision regarding alternative actions?
- Would you be re-arranging the deckchairs to make them pretty for these very picky passengers?
- Would you be arguing with crew members as to whose fault it was?
Just take a few minutes to imagine......If unsure of your response, rent the movie. Better still, go see An Inconvenient Truth - the heat is on, the corn is popping but, unfortunately and ironically some 84 years later, we're running out of ice.
