Lessons from the New “Star Trek” On Leadership and Teamwork
The new Star trek movie is a spectacular summer fun ride whether you are a “Trekkie”, or like my 9 year old Star Wars crazed son, a newbie to this iconic story and its characters.
I have loved Star Trek since it came out in 1966 when I was 13. Until seeing the new movie I had never really thought how revolutionary it was in 1966 presenting a crew made up of a black woman, an Asian, a Russian, a Scot, a rebellious Iowa farm boy and an alien. 1966…43 years ago..
Today a team this diverse is not that unusual and the movie is also is a great reminder, especially in difficult times like these, what is required for any organization to succeed:
- Diverse opinions and discussion
- Properly recruited people who are
- Well trained and
- Allowed to do their jobs and the
- Right technology to support them
Now your business may not have Klingons or Romulans to fight but your challenges are just as real.
It is challenging times like these that demand some bold thinking and action and true team work if, as Spock would say, you want to “Live, long and prosper”.
So on this Monday morning are you ready to say – “Beam me up Scotty” – I am ready to go?
“Aye Captain!”….Have a good week!!
