Thought this was an amazing painting of the medieval battlefield.
The warrior in the center is using his war hammer to literally split heads open.
Not only for physical fighting (i.e. life and death), I’ve heard this term in the past used in the office setting:
“Cracking heads” to get things done.
While war is war, I don’t think that getting to progress in the office ever merits cracking anyone’s head–let along with a battle hammer.
Yes, people can be stubborn and occasionally pose obstacles to moving forward, but that is what communication skills and persuasion are for.
You have to seriously question the leadership and sanity of anyone who thinks and talks about hurting people at work. 😉
