An African proverb says “If you want to run fast, run alone. If you want to run far, run together”. This long-term togetherness view is exactly the approach we all need now. With the pace of life, so many social distractions, so many alternative ways to communicate, coupled with business pressures, it is very easy to find yourself heading out of our control.
So as we look around to consider the daily challenges, we all need to be more wise in choosing who to bring along with us on the journey.
Think what help do you require, and what past knowledge is available to access. The partner you choose is very important in order to get the best project results. The focus should be to make the project a success by maximizing what you do with your team.
The principle, Run Together, is focused on helping your team work together, navigate changes, and make sure the results positively impact the leader, and his needs.
Think, Run Together, is to ensure that the team or partners that you bring along for the journey, are unified around the purpose. Think what an excellent result will occur once everyone is unified behind your goal. As the leader, it takes courage and sense to plan beyond the change, or the norm that was expected. As a team, you will run far and accomplish your goals.
