The Power of Shared Purpose

  • Drop egos.
  • Not death by meetings; but not unilateral decision making, either.
  • Play to strengths.
  • Appreciate frustration.
  • Trust + tension = productive cohesion.

Purpose underpins lasting effort.

  • If you coach/manage/teach, do your athletes/employees/students deeply feel a shared sense of purpose?
  • What about in your own personal, and even romantic, relationships? Do you have a shared purpose(s) with those whom you care about most?

When teams are fused by a common purpose, they become quick and adaptable, especially in complex situations.
