Unity Takes Intentionality

An important virtue of any organization should be unity. A divided team cannot move forward nor cooperate towards a common goal. But unity is fragile, and even the smallest fracture can turn into an impassable rift.

Division can begin with just a simple word, like "they." As the leader of your team, you have the ability to support your superiors, or start a mutiny. When a company-wide decision is made, you can tell your team they chose to do this, or you can say we are doing this. You can shift the blame on those above you, or have your team support the vision.

Truly supporting the vision of an organization requires intentionality. Taking the easy route and making every tough decision "theirs", lacks character. Leading your team means pointing them in the same direction the company is moving. That's unity.
