“I don’t want to live like I don’t care…I could chose not to move, but I refuse.” Josh Wilson
Indifference is a killer to causing change. In teams, it allows dysfunctional behaviors to settle in. With indifference no one is willing to speak up and help the team overcome the problems. Teams fall apart. People lose site of their passions. Even your purpose can get lost in the allure of indifference.
It takes just one person, you, to reject the allure of indifference.
Be bold and pull the team together and start a conversation about what indifference is costing the team. Each person on the team.
What comes out of rejecting indifference are many possibilities. But one possibility that unites a team that can turn around the indifference is connectedness.
Connectedness is the understanding that each of our actions influence one another and the work we do.
Connectedness allows the team to begin to see how stronger ways of working together are possible.
Connectedness allows the team to appreciate each other’s talents.
Too much is at stake when indifference dominates. Any leader can refuse to let indifference minimize effectiveness. Let it be you.
