The Code Word is Asparagus. A Simple Idea for Teamwork and Support

Code Word: #Asparagus
Code Word: #Asparagus
The story goes like this. A brother new to college takes his little sister (a year younger and still in High School) to meet his college friends on campus. Before leaving for the evening they create a code word. The code word is Asparagus.

Asparagus is spoken when the sister feels uncomfortable and is in need of “rescue” from dull or overbearing conversations.

Asparagus is mouthed when the brother feels it’s time to be pulled from a group he may have visited with a bit too long.

Asparagus is shouted when the sister and brother want to support each other in a new environment or just plain laugh for no particular reason.

The code word and the decision to create it was told at lunch the next day. With infectious laughter both brother and sister told one story after another on how Asparagus was used and the results that transpired.

Code Word: #Asparagus. What a simple concept to help us create synergy, trust and team work.

What code word can we create that will synergize our workflow?

Code Word: #Asparagus. That’s good enough for me.
