Bible Reading: James 1:5

Memory VerseIf any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 (AMP)

On a final note, let’s look at another hypothetical application of this powerful thinking tool called “Systems Thinking” by John Obili. Assuming you were the Founder/CEO of a Billion Dollar corporation and one of your founding executives was found guilty of engaging in fraudulent activity. What would you do? Well, a First Order approach to this problem would be to simply fire this individual. Second Order thinking would examine any potential consequences of dismissing this person.

It is then you will realize that this person may choose to express his disgruntlement by joining a competing organization and use your company secrets to strengthen your opposition.

Of course you could go to court, but your lawyers graduated from Harvard Law School, and would charge millions of dollars to duel with your adversary over the coming months and years. Considering the cost of the Second Order effects of a straight dismissal, you may wish to act ignorant of the act of fraud and do something else instead. Create a small office in a far away country which is inconsequential to overall brand image and profitability.

Puff up his ego by offering him the role of Country Manager or ‘General Manager – Diaspora Relations’. This fraudster would feel valued and stay on your side, while being tactically stripped off the ability to continually perpetrate fraud. You solved the First Order problem of fraud, canceled out the chances of future fraud and potentially saved the company millions of dollars in legal fees. Brethren, wisdom is profitable to direct. Look before you leap.
