“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”
FDR’s words ring as true today as they did on that day in Philadelphia in 1940, especially when you change the word “youth” in the quote above to “teams”. It would look like this:
“We cannot always build the future for our teams, but we can build our teams for the future.”
Pretty powerful statement, huh?
One of the ways that we can build our teams for the future is to actively engage in Leadership Behavior #2 – Talks about future trends that will influence how our work gets done.
By talking about the future and engaging those on our teams in conversations about the trends and forces that shape the future of our work, we are preparing them to be forward-thinking visionaries. We are also engaging those we work with to shape the future of our work together.
