The Difference Between Teamwork & Network
It is possible to have teamwork and not have a network. But, it is not possible to have a network without teamwork. Let me explain. When two separate teams from two different organization go out into the game of life, their goal is to defeat their opponents. If they don’t win in the game of life, ministry or business, they are known as a “losing team.”
In networking, however, the teamwork is not about competing but about completing; not so much about victory as it about vision. The networking leader learns how to build a network of teams who have different roles but the same goal. Our goal is the same as our Lord’s goal. His goal is that everyone on the planet have an adequate witness of the Gospel in their lifetime. Any goal less than “everyone” is not a God-sized goal.
What is the role of your network? Does the vision of your network compel fellow-leaders to step up and add value to one another? Whenever you sense the spirit of competition entering your network remind everyone that it is not about egos and logos but about fulfilling the Great Commission!Back To Blog
