Hello JCI Michigan!
We’ve made it to June. Sometimes, March feels like 2 years ago. Other times, it seems like last week. How did we get here? What have we learned? How have we adapted and grown? What have we found to be critically important versus what we needed to let go of?
This month, I’m focusing on the survival of the hive and what I see chapters doing is absolutely laser focused on doing just that. Here is an excerpt from an article by Deborah Mackin and Matthew Harrington.
“Bees have an absolute obsession with what is good for the whole group over what is good for any one bee. The whole hive’s vision, strategy, and belief help define ‘due north’ so every bee is committed to the greater purpose, direction, and philosophy of surviving.”
Do we have a survival of the hive philosophy in our organization? I believe we do. We are committed to developing young leaders as we improve our local communities. We understand how the mission and vision of our organization can make a huge impact and that helps us focus on what matters. It’s why members of JCI Michigan stay committed and continue to have fun as they grow as leaders. I can’t wait to see how our chapters continue to innovate and adapt as we move into the warm, summer months!
