Doing things with people when everyone has to rely on each other manufactures trust. It opens the door to meaningful conversations. A friend asked me why I took my nieces camping last weekend instead of going to a hotel. “Isn’t that a lot of work?”. Yep, it is.
Doing the ‘work’ together builds memories that creates a bond. Time spent when everyone is a contributor results in caring relationships. It is life’s secret sauce. When we care, we ask the right questions. Our words, and our silence, at the right time in the right place may be just the spark needed to inspire the team to achieve great things. Meaningful conversation like these happen around the campfire, on the golf course and over a meal. Leaders create the opportunity.
