It’s an amateur choir, but the sound these folks make is stunning. They performed for years under the leadership of their much beloved director, who died suddenly and unexpectedly.
The search for a new director began and they found an interesting guy. He and the board came to a decision about a new vision for the choir, deciding that rather than being solely about music, there was a grander service for them to provide. That vision laid clear the path forward.
Everyone in the choir auditioned to remain and, although it was hard to do, some were asked to leave. They simply couldn’t clear the bar of performance necessary for the vision of the future.
And it’s working, because the choir is even better than before. Answering the “What are we all about?” question first made the “How can we improve?” question easy to answer.
That’s the point. There must be a vision of a better future in order to make sound decisions about how to solve problems and overcome challenges. The test is always about which choice best moves us toward what we want, that better future. And it’s your job as the leader to provide that clarity.
