“Why” in Leadership
The only leadership question that unites people is “Why?” (Carey Nieuwhof, best-selling author, speaker, and podcaster.)
He continues, “When you cast vision, focus twice as much on why you do what you do rather than what and how. Why unites, while what and how divide.” A really challenging thought. If you can unite your followers and co-workers on the “why” of your project, you may find it easier to explain the “what” and “how.” A united workforce is essential to accomplish worthy projects.
Make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose (Philippians 2:2).
