One of the things I love the most about leading our team is the out-of-the-office time together. Usually the schedule is insanely full and we’re exhausted when we get back. This trip was no different in that regard, but the highlight of our time together for me was the candor, vulnerability and honesty our team shared in our short 24 hours together.
“It’s the great temptation for small groups of people to slide into a state where they’re not quite telling each other the truth and they’re not quite celebrating each other. Instead, they tolerate each other, they accommodate each other, and they settle for sitting on the unspoken matters that separate them.”
Hybels calls this settling for “Pseudo Community”
Although our schedules said that this wasn’t the best time to take a 24 hour getaway together, I know without a doubt that as a team we needed this time to reconnect and fight the pull of “pseudo community”.
Here are a few pics to enjoy and be sure to check out the video on Wilson’s blog!
I’d love to know… what are you doing to fight “pseudo community” with your teams?
