MOLESKINE:  What matters most in a team: Trust.

In this team that is F3 Sandhills, we succeed because our mates are safe to take risks around their Pax.  There is a confidence that no one on the team will embarrass or punish anyone else for admitting a mistake, asking a question, or offering a new idea.  There are times of off-color humor, candid remarks and jeering and it’s done with love at the core.

Great teams thrive on trust!

When our team really shines is when things are hard.  When men have; lost their jobs, are looking for their purpose, battling illness/injury, marriage or kid issues.  It is in these times when we “bring it in” and listen…without the intention of responding. We don’t speak, we be.  We are authentic and keep it real because none of us are perfect and living that imperfection allows others to know that none of us have it “all together.”

In my life, the great teams I have been on have been ones where men didn’t need to say much at all.  Through relationships built on trust you inherently KNOW when something is not quite right. And in those moments you put yourself aside, clear the calendar and are present to the other.  

We move through life, hopefully, with a team around us.  Successful teams quickly learn the value of trust. That lesson is taught by either its presence or absence, both of which are strong teachers.  You learn how to take care of each other and in doing so it blossoms outside of the team to the families, the community.  

When I’m Living Right and Leading Right I bring these lessons learned to life.  Our children and our children’s children count on it. Thank you for going on this journey with me.  Hopefully we never stop learning, never stop falling, never stop getting up and never stop trusting.
