Practice Leadership , has a brilliant post about culture that we all should read. It's simple but profound at the same time. Please take the time to venture over via the link above, it is well worth your time.
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?" The eagle answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up
Reminds me of the quote I shared a couple posts ago about being 3” tall! The worker as we know it today is changing. We are moving and in many cases have moved from the industrial age to the knowledge worker age.
Workers in this age will exercise their entrepreneurial spirit more than ever both inside and outside of organizations. The best ideas will be ideas that are fostered from Mass Collaboration in lieu of a single mind. This age will understand and harness the concept of teamwork.
I want to invite you to explore this with me. Please drop me a line with your thoughts on the knowledge age. How will we manage that worker in an outdated business model? How do we marry the old with the new? How do we make allowances for the new while preserving the dignity and moral of the old?
We are all called or compelled to travel on a similar path and that being said it is paramount that we stay together both outwardly and more importantly inwardly. Alignment must be present in order to achieve spiritual intelligence.
