Dan used to say to me that we needed to motivate our teams to pull the rope.
At first – I wasn’t sure what he was talking about.
Why would they pull?
But then ..
What’s the opposite of pulling a rope?
Think about how successful you will be when you do that. Yeh – pile of rope on the floor.
When / how / if people pull the rope is a product of two things:
a) Their motivation
b) Our inspiration
It’s impossible to inspire people who have no interest. It’s also impossible to inspire people without a compelling mission / story / reason.
If we have both – amazing things can happen.
And they will!
