Haiti Day 5- Construction Material Collection

Haiti Day 5- Construction Material Collection | Missions | Scoop.it
   This morning we again split into two teams.  One team went to build another foundation.  Since I had worked on a foundation day one I elected to place myself  on the crew to collect rubble and river sand (for mixing concrete) in the dump truck.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, May 13, 2013 9:14 PM

Do you need a "higher purpose" to round out your alignment efforts? 


Here is a great perspective.  Make "mission" a part of your mission.  In other words think about the charities (called non-profits in the USA).  I've found two things that get employees to "up their game" more than any other "lever" and engage at higher levels:


1. Emotional connections with Customers

2. Emotional connections to Community or Charity giving.


If people have the opportunity to go beyond the job and beyond the "contract" and deliver a better experience...or a better life... to someone they can see personally, then you will see excitement and passion blossom. 


So, why don't we include both as major drivers to our business?  Not just afterthoughts when a customer complains, or during holidays when giving to others (or tax season) is more on our mind.  


This article really gives some great advice for how to include this into your business.  Plus I will let you into a secret -- if you want to have an edge in recruiting under 30's then you will have an edge if you do this now!


Go on do good... people will follow!

Andy Jones's insight:

Forget the name of the church or who the author is, this article should be written by any pastor or ministry leader who cares about his or her community.  Thanks, Ernie!
