Nov 12, 2018 - Are you confusing unity with like-mindedness? As you strive for your goals, are you surrounding yourself with people who can truly support and enhance your efforts or "yes" people? Are you focused on getting to the heart of the answers needed or more focused on avoiding conflict? Are you seeking people who share your core values or merely agree with you? By realizing that unification is strengthened by embracing different perspectives while sharing core values, you will begin to know true progress.
Take an MM&I Moment to assess how you are approaching working with and engaging others in your efforts. Do you welcome and encourage feedback and perspectives? Do you know one another's core values and how they align and differ? Do you seek understanding over agreement? Do you embrace differences while appreciating what is shared? When we accept and then celebrate one another's differences, we are better able to unite on a more meaningful and deeper level.
