“Coming together is a beginning; keep together is progress; working together is success.”
– Henry Ford
When I read that, my heart sighs in relief. That’s just a description of healthy management or a positive marriage. And what a joy it is when we have it!
A team that works together with ease, with joy. This certainly isn’t just about manufacturing or cars!
We all know that synergy…. it’s that feeling that people are communicating seamlessly. You might know what each other is going to say. Perhaps you instinctively know best how to split activities and responsibilities, respecting the unique talents of each.
Most importantly, you share. You share thoughts, ideas, insights, work and wisdom.
May we come together in peace. Keep together by excellence in communication, building a sure foundation. And work together towards success, where both parties feels supported, triumphant, and….loved. Marriage, Management, Meeting, No Matter What — that’s the feeling we strive for: Successful Communication and Execution Through Love.
Henry Ford was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. Ford married Clara Ala Bryant in 1888 and supported himself by farming and running a sawmill. He did not invent the automobile, but he developed and manufactured the Model T. This was the first automobile that many middle class Americans could afford to buy and it revolutionized transportation and American industry. As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and well-known people in the world. He is credited with the concept of “Fordism”, a mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision and his intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations.
