There is likely little doubt your organization is full of
- really smart professionals,
- who are highly skilled, and
- who have invested endless hours,
- demonstrating their mastery.
Do not be fooled, however. These qualities do not differentiate your company. A lot of organizations are filled people who meet those criteria.
What distinguishes your organization from others is when the people with whom you work choose to matter.
Has your team decided to do something significant – not for themselves, but for others?
Last week I supported a cross-functional leadership team determined to achieve something grand. They started the day as a collection of individuals so enthralled by an idea that they forgot themselves.
Driven by a curiosity and wondering “what if?” they charted a course of digital transformation that will deliver new value to clients. What this team has decided to do has never been accomplished in their industry.
Determined to break barriers, they reminded me of why we wrote, Do Big Things: When the members of a team give themselves to something greater than any individual, they realize a certain greatness within themselves. Choosing to matter matters.
On Tuesday, August 30 at 12:30 p.m. Eastern we are throwing a virtual party. The gathering marks the 5th anniversary of the publishing of Do Big Things.
You are welcome to join us. We will explore how teams such as the one I worked with last week are overcoming tremendous odds and making contributions beyond what was once thought imaginable.
Quickly uniting people as one team that chooses to matter is the defining need of our time. We celebrate the collaborative leaders whose teams are doing big things.
