In the beginning, an organization is usually struggling to get established. Once established and profitable, it can begin assembling parts to the organization or bones.

Eventually, for better or for worse, these bones fall into many categories.

Let’s examine the four main bones of most organizations.

  1. The wish-bones: They are the people in the organization keeping a low profile and wishing somebody will do something about a problem so they don’t have to be involved.
  2. The jaw-bones: They do all the talking pretending to be a problem solver. When in reality, they don’t do anything but talk a good game.
  3. The knuckle-bones: These are the people that knock everyone and everything. They bring nothing to the table.
  4. The back-bones: Finally, the heart and soul of the organization. They carry the brunt of the load. They volunteer to help rather than being asked. When needed, they put the organization on their backs and obviously will do the majority of the work.
