the glue

2 Nov

The Amber Youth conference was AMAZING- Kudos to Suraj and the team. You guys are incredible.

This weekend has taught me a few things about teams and breaking down our own assumptions of “how things should be” instead of “how things could be.”

Often, I get caught up with the expectations people put on organizations, so a new group needs a board, or an exec with committees, and I get so caught up in the structure of an organization that I forget the glue.

What exactly is the glue?

The glue is a vision
The glue is a sense of connectedness to others on the team
The glue is candy at meetings and karaoke after
The glue is breaking the sound barrier and doing things like they’ve never been done before.
We need to be innovators, dreamers, lovers.

After watching This is It

I was reminded again why we need to test boundaries and go above an beyond the norm- maybe that’s the glue of great teams.
