Organizations will either come together in a fight for a common goal, or turn inward and fight each other.
Look at any club, family, church, department, nation, or business you are a part of. When does the most infighting take place? Is it during a fight for its life? When pushing towards a common mission?
Big, slow moving companies like Microsoft know what I’m talking about. So does the PTA at an already successful school. They’ve lost purpose. They lose focus.
When there is nothing big to fight, they find stupid little things to focus on and whine about. In the end up, they fight each other.
Whether they admit it or not, most people are warriors.
They’re looking for a good fight. They need a mission.
Leaders with a vision can keep people focused on a common goal. They rally their troops and get them fighting together, not against each other.
We need to embrace our team of warriors and give them something to fight for.
All warriors need a mission.
Lead a mission tonight,
