There is power in all of us.
There is power in diversity of knowledge.
There is power in an inclusive organization.
There is power in an inclusive society.
When an organization is diverse, it brings a lot to the table. It brings different ideas, values, interests, personalities and knowledge, to the table.
One person cannot be smarter than all of us. A collection of ideas is what fosters innovation.
“None of us is as smart as all of us.” – Kenneth H. Blanchard
Diversity increases our problem-solving capacity. When we work together, not compete against each other, solutions to the tasks at hand, or the tasks to come, will become available to the team. When we work together, when we put our heads together, we are certainly BETTER than one. None of us is as smart as all of us.
Cooperation produces everything. Competition produces nothing.
Are you going to cooperate? Or, Are you going to compete?
If you want to cooperate, cooperate with all your heart. If you want to compete, compete with strategy.
