At a recent performance, I sat in the audience trying to figure out what was missing. The performance was technically strong, but I wasn’t moved. As each act ended, the audience clapped politely. But there wasn’t a point through the evening where the audience stood and clapped with enthusiasm. It took me a while to put my finger on it. While the performance was technically strong, it lacked passion. And passion is that thing that is the difference between something being fine and being a wow moment.
Having passion in your organization will make the difference between doing just ok and being high-performing. Is passion showing up in your organization? What would it look like if it did?
