When two or more are gathered …

Last evening, I met up with fellow trainers from the International Society of  Neuro-Semantics, Singapore chapter. We have met a month before and were keen to bring the group to the next level. Thus began the agenda for the next meeting.

The group dynamics was great as we could gel and had common goals. Each person had a part to play. We fed on each other’s energy and that brought the group to a whole new level. While looking at how to support fellow trainers within the region, we embarked on a new journey of hosting our own training classes, not as individuals but as a group. This is new. It is a collaborative affair with like-minded people. Brainstorming together allowed creative juices to flow and explore new avenues that have never been tread.

Having pulled resources make sense and having work partners would mean the work gets distributed. It’s economics 101 where resources are scarce and making the best use of them saw economies of scale. It is no longer a solo flight but a charted one that brings us to our destination. Together we will soar to greater heights. It would be synergistic where the sum of the parts is far greater than each individual component, having to ensure we had the ego strength to manage things together.

The commitment level of the team members was amazing. What was more awesome were the strengths that each brought with him or her complimented the weaknesses. Someone with a global perspective would be visionary while another who is detailed, got the nitty-gritty done. The doer cum performer amongst us had to ground the creator when far-fetched ideas start to emerge which had to be archived for the future. We knew what we wanted and what to move away from. If you had been there, you would see the rapport and friendly banter confirming the fiery enthusiasm within the group bursting to the brim.

It was a meeting that lasted for 2hours and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thus when two or more are gathered, we not only get more things done, we grow. I dedicate this article to my two fellow trainers, Michael and Peter who encouraged, motivated and inspired me. Who wouldn’t look forward to more of such meaningful get-together?
