It isn’t revolutionary to believe in core teams. In the business world we see CEO’s, COO’s and CFO’s.
In Sports we usually watch three or four football captains walk out onto the field.
The question I want to ask is whether you lead with an agricultural or mechanistic mindset?
What Mechanical Relationships Look Like:
– Send it down the line. Every six minutes we are creating a new widget. These people create the glass, these people fill in the soda and these people cap the bottles. Send out for delivery and sale.
-primarily made up of teams driven to create and execute no matter the season of life. Things need to get done and things need to get done now.
– sow, plant, reap…I have needs and objectives and if the sign says open were going to be moving regardless of the weather. We want to see life transformation and were not messing around. Life is short and hell is hot.
– its not that we don’t care about people, but goals need to be met that supersede the issues that arise in life.
What Agricultural Relationships Look Like:
– There is a season for everything. You will plow in vain if the ground is covered in snow and are hoping to plant your wheat.
– Shift your focus off of trying to till the ground and instead either rest or shift your priorities some where else. What are other areas of grow we need to address?
– You can only move as fast as the climate will allow and you will not be able to force anything to grow or change simply as a result of trying harder; you aren’t going to force it to rain, you aren’t going to force the sun to shine and you aren’t going to force life change in people.
– There are circumstances that are beyond our control and we do what we can with what we have in the season we need to.
How do you see you role in leading a team…mechanically or agriculturally?
