A House Divided

by Sally Schroder

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Whether you know this quote from the gospel of Matthew or from Abraham Lincoln’s senatorial campaign speech, it is a truth with broad application. It’s especially true in organizations.

Unity of purpose starts at the top of any organization. Those in governance, be they the owners or a board, must agree and commit to a mission and to goals. Only then can the management team formulate, communicate and execute a strategy to achieve them.

Without unity of purpose at the highest level, an organization is a house divided against itself. It cannot stand.
