Your Next Step
Happy New Year! We led off 2015 with an inspirational poem that resonated with many. We decided to kick off our third year of Branches & Roots with a new creation, focused around the different types of teams we often write about. We look forward to partnering with you in 2016.
Here we go!

Your Next Step
How will you take on the New Year?
An ominous thought no doubt.
The tasks are many and the time is dear.
Chart a course, and take the First Step.
What will your key partner need?
Potato sack races require harmony.
Understand each other through word and deed.
Listen first, agree on a goal, and take the Next Step.
How could this year make your small team take flight?
A group fed by two pizzas is sized for success.
The V8 engine roars when the timing is right.
Learn each others strengths and habits, and take the Next Step.
Your whole group gathers and agendas abound.
Leading from the front can find you alone.
Seek the middle, where the council is found.
Align the interests, and take the Next Step.
Why should a community care about each other?
Aren't we made to quarrel and fight?
Don't let the news steal the joy and smother.
Find that common why, bond together, and take a Collective Step.
Our interactions with others come in many forms and sizes.
Projects are ongoing or maybe starting anew.
Team dynamics are hard work until one realizes,
Finishing the job right is what they are meant to do.
Let's Do Something Great....
