With last week’s post being such a hit (thank you to everyone who shared), I struggled to choose which of my on-deck posts would be the appropriate follow-up to a call for more volunteerism. Nothing felt right. Now, I know that my posts don’t necessarily need to have a flow to them, but I like to get some consistency to what I write about.
And then I got to thinking about what’s going on with the world this week, and had a bit of a lightbulb moment. Post-election, what the United States needs to focus on is uniting and moving forward as one, and not focusing on our differences, but all the things we have in common. But what’s that got to do with Salesforce?
One thing that I’ve experienced at many companies is the sense of competing objectives, but what everyone always should remember is that every person in that room has the same end goal in mind – for the company to be as successful as possible. I think we all occasionally need to take a step back from what we are working on and level-set with our office peers to make sure the company is moving in the right direction.
By taking the time to gain a little perspective and respect for ‘clashing’ projects, I believe that a company can move forward with a united strategy to make their organization even more successful.
