Everybody knows how critical a shared sense of mission is to a team’s fortunes. Napoleon and Julius Caesar certainly knew it, and they lived by it.
But like anything else worth having, we humans have a talent for taking it for granted. We have a talent of putting it on autopilot, then wondering what the hell happened when it all goes terribly wrong.
The team you’re in has its own mission, I’ll bet. The question then is, how well do you remember it? How well do you live it every day?
