What’s your teamwork why?
Wise leaders know that inspiring others is a must. 2016 is my year of teamwork. I chose teamwork, as my theme after our family ran into challenges that were too big to face on our own. I’ve often written about my reluctance to share my story. Our blended family journey is an ongoing roller-coaster. There are parts that I would rather keep to myself. However, at the end of 2015, everything changed. In a matter of five minutes (possibly less) a California Family Court judge turned our family’s world up-side-down. Suddenly, I knew that our journey was too big to travel alone.
The prayers, encouragement, and creativity of others were no longer a want–they became a daily need. If you’re new to this site, you can read two of the most honest posts that I have written–detailing our latest adventures and challenges–here. My goal in sharing them is to inspire positive change in our family court system and to team up with others to make this world a better, safer place for children, families, and blended families.

Inspiring Others with “Why”
I write and blog because I long to make this world a better place. I desire to support parents in transforming their families and blended families into joyful, loving, and peaceable homes. Finally, I team-up with others because this task is far too big to accomplish on my own.
None of us is as smart as all of us. -Ken Blanchard
As Ken Blanchard so eloquently states, no one of us is as smart, good, or productive as all of us working together. The bottom line is, I team-up with others because I have a massive goal that I believe in!
Finding Your Teamwork Why
But this isn’t the only reason people blog and team-up. There are plenty of other excellent answers to the question “Why?” In his book, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, author Simon Sinek describes how great leads don’t simply take action, they are good inspiring others.
Knowing why we do what we do, keeps us pressing forward when the road gets rocky.
Having a mission and sharing is often, is one way of inspiring others to get on-board. And teaming-up has many advantages. Teams are:
- Excellent problem-solvers.
- A place for generating creative ideas.
- Able to uphold one another in prayer.
- A whole lot of fun.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to team-up in 2016. What is your teamwork “why,” and how are you inspiring others with it? I’d love to continue this discussion in the comments below. And, while your there, feel free to share your “why,” for blogging too. I’m thrilled to team up with you in 2016!
