Listen to the Story


There was a small company that wanted to create a new product. They believed that working together would result in a better product. So they assigned a team of ten employees to work on it. At first, the team worked well together. Each of them contributed their ideas and skills. However, as they progressed, it became clear that they had different opinions on what the final product should be like. Some team members wanted the product to be simple and practical, while others wanted it to be innovative and unique. The disagreements grew more frequent. The team became divided on what direction to take. In the end, the team was unable to agree on a final product, and their project failed. The company learned that the proverb "Too many cooks spoil the broth" was true. Too many people contributing to a project can result in confusion and disagreements.
