What’s your purpose?

During a class on Friday I was reminded of a very important point: Your team needs a real purpose, something big worth accomplishing that you can only do together.

Without a purpose, team’s don’t necessarily dissolve.  Usually they do something far worse: they continue meeting but their goal (unstated, of course) is their own comfort.  I don’t know about you, but I’m often more comfortable when not meeting with a group without a purpose.

If your team is struggling, if you aren’t feeling uncomfortable (at least a little bit) in your meetings, and if you just wonder why you’re all still meeting, remember your big purpose. There was something that brought you together.  There was some mountain you wanted to climb together.

What’s your purpose?

Say it.

Shout it.

Share it.

Then, keep driving change.
