It's funny how life has a way of putting you right where you need to be in order to learn the lesson and the answer to the question you have been asking.
Corporate team building scared me..What do I have to offer business people? I have never had an "office job" in my life! The last one I had at the ripening age of 21 I got fired!
I know nothing about it...That fear paralyzed me.
One day it hit me like 2 hind feet of a mule. ( I say a mule because my horses would never do that and mules are more than willing to knock some sense into you). I live with the best and most efficient corporation of them all! My herd! They know how to get the business done.
So there is Metta. She is the lead mare of our herd and no one pushes her around. She has earned her respect from the herd just by being constant, stable, understanding and accepting. Sherlock, who is our elder male gelding, once held that prime position. But as Metta slowly rose through the ranks of our herd as she aged, Sherlock recognized her power and talents and easily stepped aside to allow her to take on the role of leader. He didn't argue, disagree or really put up a fight. It was simply that he realized she was better for the job of taking care of the corporation. He still holds a senior role and sits on the advisory council of the herd. But his days are now less stressful.
Every member of the herd knows their place. Accepts their place. And works to keep the relationships in tact and healthy so the herd stays strong and safe.
It really is beautiful to watch this well oiled machine work their magic and stay in peace.
So many businesses out there struggle because they have forgotten the most basic and first rule of survival. The strength of the herd is in the relationships of the parties involved. Without trust, respect and acceptance, survival is threatened and definite destruction occurs.
So I guess I can say that I have been fortunate to have been given the chance to be a part of a corporation that is not only surviving, but is thriving! I hope I don't get fired from this one!
Oh yea..who will feed them? Ok..so now I have found my place in the herd...
I accept that....
