How to catch a monkey

The monkeys live in the trees to catch them the locals place a large heavy pottery vase at the bottom of the tree and place fruit, sweets and other things the monkeys like to eat inside. The bulbous vase has wide base and a narrow opening just wide enough for the monkeys small hand. At night the monkey climbers down from the tree reaches in to the vase and grabs a treat making a fist out of their hand. To get free all the monkey has to do is let go! 
Some ideas are very attractive, some situations are very desirable but sometimes you have to know when to let go.
Did you picture yourself as the monkey or the hunter or did you stand apart and observe from a distance? 
If one is a member of staff, another a manager and the third some one from HR. Which is which and why?
