Two Penguins One Iceberg is a whimsical webcomic about two penguins living an awkward and adventurous life on an iceberg off the coast of Antarctica. It’s ironic that a group of generals who reached their positions by finding ways to say yes starve for a way to speak the word on this most critical of issues: competition for the intellectual focus and energy of the core warriors of a service that wins wars by thinking.
Yes, you can and should consider yourself "in the know" because you are reading this. When confronted with this issue, Air Force leaders have pleaded a lack of resources. The extra room they tend to have on their icebergs, which must be viciously safeguarded by leaders, is what allows an organization to invent, experiment, reflect, theorize, and quarrel with itself in response to encountered or anticipated challenges. These Adélie penguins are thriving at the edge of the sea ice, but their fellows are dying when trapped too far from the ocean. It keeps an organization on the intellectual offensive. or higher up the iceberg – in social role, for example? Sign up today to get weekly science coverage direct to your inbox. Go get the resources. The iceberg can only hold so many penguins, and at some point can hold no more. The finding is a worrying sign for other penguin colonies confronted with climate change. I think Erik made the perfect analogy, that it was like paddling through a frozen margarita or a slushie. Copyright © 2020 John Q. What the authors were able to determine was that the surviving birds are not doing well. This website uses cookies to improve user experience. Let's just hope that "pooping" doesn't start running. Solve for yes. The joke is that the iceberg is of finite size so eventually it will be full of penguins and in order to fit more penguins on the iceberg, others are going to have to fall off. This means drastically reducing things like official visits, ceremonial obligations, duplicative/redundant/non-value added/unduly repetitive training, administrative requirements, and self-support in areas like IT and finance.

I do not have any ambition or patience to collect every single one before it falls (nor do I expect anyone else to! For this to be possible, you’ve got to hire people with big icebergs and develop and retain every one of them. In December 2013, “Hundreds of abandoned eggs were noted, and the ground was littered with the freeze-dried carcasses of the previous season’s chicks,” they wrote.

As much as I love the penguins, it was just too damn cool paddling through the ice and icebergs.

I wholeheartedly agree with the previous comment and will also offer that titles or even uniforms (in this case tuxedos) do not make a leader. This is the point of educating and training … to improve the iceberg by both enlarging and strengthening it. When confronted with this issue, Air Force leaders have pleaded a lack of resources. When the explorer Douglas Mawson established a base at Cape Denison at the head of Commonwealth Bay in 1912, he complained about the noise of the Adélie penguin colony, estimated to contain 100,000 birds. Mastery will never truly be reached, but the fight to get and stay there is the most important fight of all. For those unfamiliar let me explain: think of your mind as the iceberg, and every piece of information you know is a penguin. But contained within the story and the characters is a powerful message about the fear of change and how to motivate people to face the future and take action. https://tearlberg.blogspot.com/2010/01/like-penguins-off-iceberg.html If even one penguin representing ops knowledge is squeezed off the iceberg or can’t get aboard in the first place, a strong ops culture isn’t possible. When new knowledge is forced into a brain that has already exhausted its short-term accessible storage capacity, penguins have to be shoved off the iceberg to make room for new ones. We want airmen confronting, solving, and innovating around tactical problems, enlarging their icebergs rather than having penguins drown in the deep waters as the most important mental real estate in the world is flooded with administrative and bureaucratic distraction. To be clear, this is not an argument that squadrons should be challenge-free environments. If instead of fixing squadrons, the problem was how to win a battle or a war, the generals would figure it out. But there are legitimate and illegitimate forms for challenge to take. In summary, the ‘deeper’ characteristics – the submerged ones – determine how well we are matched with our roles or jobs. But even if everyone started with the same iceberg, they don’t stay the same size over time. I do not have any ambition or patience to collect every single one before it falls (nor do I expect anyone else to! We are a conglomeration of awesome so powerful that we once rode a manatee down a volcano of molten sweetness for two weeks! Fans of poorly-drawn penguins, puns, anti-humor, irony, political snark, and non-sequitors should feel right at home, while others may feel like they are wandering aimlessly through the frozen tundra. But we have a choice about behaviour and if I understand my motives I can manage them in a way that is appropriate for my role in leading others. In fact, they should be roughly the opposite. This is just an excuse, and it’s unacceptable.

Others stray too far to be quickly recalled, but can still make their way back eventually. Considering the location is the windiest place on Earth, the birds must have been loud. By continuing to use our website you consent to all cookies in accordance with our cookie policy.
This is all fine and good so long as the penguins sacrificed aren’t particularly important. Already, Turney noted, it appears that icebergs have become drastically more frequent off the Antarctic Peninsula, the area of the continent most affected by climate change. Some people are gifted with more penguin-habitable real estate than others. They have the spare capacity to continue thinking forward when the immediate moment becomes overwhelming for most others. If my brain is an iceberg, only so many penguins (a.k.a thoughts) fit on the iceberg before one has to fall off into the sea. It just isn’t occurring yet. One of the few healthy-looking penguins left at Cape Denison. These issues have been characterized as “queep” … and headquarters staffs have approached them with a standard bureaucratic checklist. Well, guess what … that is the problem. The other thing is that not all icebergs are created equally. The situation and the adversary are constantly fluid, so learning can never stop. Each human brain is like an iceberg, and each bit of knowledge is like a penguin. Sometimes it remains within mental grasp if fervently reached for, and other times it drifts too far from that grasp to be had without a deliberate herding effort to push the penguins back closer so they can climb back on. All rights reserved. Trade frills for them. One of the main ways we grow the iceberg is to deliberately overfill it with penguins until an individual learns to sustain a larger penguin population without any diving off.

Well, if you want a strong operational culture, people must be free to continually learn. When new knowledge is forced into a brain that has already exhausted its short-term accessible storage capacity, penguins have to be shoved off the iceberg to make room for new ones. The support system simply must be fixed. Sometimes it is lost altogether. Tearlberg is the greatest in the history! (No, it is not a mammal). If instead of fixing squadrons, the problem was how to win a battle or a war, the generals would figure it out. In Antarctic Science, Turney and his co-authors attribute the difference to the iceberg B09B, grounded offshore, filling the bay with ice. B09B broke off the Ross Ice Shelf in 1987 and in December 2011 became frozen to the seabed at the mouth of Commonwealth Bay. Go get the resources. The iceberg in question, B09B, has altered the penguins’ frigid environment, resulting in a mass of deaths. Annette Turney/Australasian Antarctic Expedition 2013-14.

Turney said the penguins appear unable to move to new colonies and there is no prospect for rescuing them by carving holes in the ice, as these would rapidly freeze over. Each human brain is like an iceberg, and each bit of knowledge is like a penguin. Nevertheless, the fear is that global warming will cause an increase in iceberg calving, creating situations such as the one at Cape Denison all around Antarctica. A penguin apocalypse is unfolding in Commonwealth Bay, Antarctica, as tens of thousands of birds are cut off from their food supply by a stranded iceberg. The iceberg can only hold so many penguins, and at some point can hold no more. (Don't worry, "writing" and "pooping" don't look like they're going anywhere soon. The analogy of penguins on an iceberg therefore seemed quite appropriate. This means there must at all times be room on the iceberg for new penguins to climb aboard. Empty staffs for them. However, Professor Chris Turney of the University of New South Wales recently found numbers around a tenth of that, and many were not even trying to hatch eggs. They grow (and sometimes shrink) over time with the acquisition (and divestiture) of learning ability and the development of natural aptitude. It is not clear whether the 5,500 surviving penguins pairs have found rare cracks in the ice to jump through, or if they are journeying all the way to the edge. Undertaking it haphazardly by saturating the mind risks melting the iceberg. If my brain is an iceberg, only so many penguins (a.k.a thoughts) fit on the iceberg before one has to fall off into the sea. Empty staffs for them. Argue for them.
