Leadership Lesson From Science Class

As the picture above illustrates (I think), in science class, we used to learn about potential energy and kinetic energy. The basic idea (as best as I can remember) is that potential energy is energy gaining and kinetic energy is energy releasing. In leadership, we have to have a solid flow of both.

We have to constantly be looking for ways to build energy in our organization. We have to find ways to build anticipation and excitement. This has to be done constantly.

We also have to have energy releasing. In order for our organization to grow and be healthy, there needs to be energy. People need to be excited about not only what could happen, but what is happening. People have to feel the energy building and then be excited about how it’s going to release.

How do you build energy in your organization?
How do you keep a healthy flow of both?
Just something for thought…
