JewishToday’s #TipForTuesday is particularly interesting for me as it also coincides with Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the Jewish High Holidays. It is a time to reflect on the year that has passed, ask for forgiveness for those we may have hurt (intentionally or unintentionally) and to begin with a fresh slate.

Putting my leader hat on, what a great opportunity to take stock and if need be, make necessary changes that will impact the remainder of the year.

So selecting the three random cards from Developing the Leader Within You deck, I was hoping the words would align with this time of reflection.

This month’s selections are:

  • Teamwork – a cooperative effort by a group or team
  • Fairness – treating people and being treated equally
  • Change – looking forward to and valuing change, continuous improvement and doing things differently

I’d say these align quite nicely, wouldn’t you?

The concept of community is a central part of the Jewish faith – our customs and traditions are often centered on family and our congregation.  In fact, when asking for forgiveness during these holy days, we do so as a community.  What better example of teamwork than to accept full responsibility for our actions.

Fairness is something we all wish for – didn’t we all hear as children to treat others as we’d like to be treated.

Change is difficult for many people – we get comfortable with the status quo, keeping things the way they always are.  But how can we grow our organizations if we’re not willing to do things a little different, looking for ways to make changes that improve and enhance our organizations?
