The Classic Pamela Positive: “Coming Together Is A Beginning; Keep Together Is Progress; Working Together Is Success.” – Henry Ford

                         

“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.

The Classic Pamela Positive: Start by Listening

“My goal is to extract a design that emerges from the essence of the music rather than to decorate its story…   This process usually takes two to three months of immersing myself in the opera by listening to it 200 to 300 times.”

 

– Jun Kaneko

Master designer Jun Kaneko provides the design for the San Francisco Opera’s production of The Magic Flute…and what a powerful way he envisages how to create this vision for us all.  It’s synergistic, based on pulling all elements together and starting with one of the most important qualities…listening.

 

No matter your profession, you can be a good listener today. You might listen to the preschool kids you manage.  You might listen to your elderly dog that would like a nice tummy rub. You might listen to your neighbor who asked you to trim the tree so it doesn’t hang over his property.   Or you might create an amazing work of art such as Jun Kaneko through The Magic Flute.  While his work seems supra-important, every person’s effort to listen is just as important.  

 

If we listened, and did this for hours like Jan, everyone would be happy. Relationships with people would be lovely.

 

The world can be lovely, if we will just listen,

 

Pamela
