Comradery is the spirit of friendship and community in a group, Who is a comrade? Someone who comes to mind when you say, “We’re in this together.”
There have been a few times when comradery in the accomplishment of a task (or mission) has been most effective. One in particular when charting the long-term path of a growing organization….the team had the right people onboard and an unwavering commitment to accomplish the mission. The end result was extraordinary.
Does true comradery happen all the time….not necessarily. The key element like most anything else is getting the right people on the bus….heading in the right direction.
In our business….we did have a sense of community….after all we were together six days a week and working towards the same goal. Was it 100% comradery? No. perhaps because it was of such long duration.
Comradery develops at its best when forming a team to accomplish a specific task (mission). No matter how talented an individual….teams can achieve much more.
