On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright comes to you live from his living room in Treasure Island, Fla. to talk about the four behaviors of community.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." --Helen Keller

Moral: As Buddha once said: "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle." A community's candle becomes eternal when it burns to a common cause.

The 4 Behaviors of Community:

1. Keep a United Mindset

2. Promote Joint Ownership

3. Be a Good Alliance Citizen

4. Protect the Culture

1. Keep a United Mindset Quote:

"You can discover more about person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." --Plato

Moral: One can look at building community as being parallel to "having fun." This type of camaraderie indicates that members of the organization feel a sense of friendship and trust toward one another.

Requires Two Things:

  • High Morale (happens when a positive outlook fuels one's confidence, and then that same confident belief transforms into a state of loyalty or willingness to preform tasks). Feeling part of something positive and proven contributes significantly to allegiance.

  • Solidarity (happens when agreement of feeling and action create a state of unity). Having solidarity within an organization requires members to show support for one another. This occurs when it stops being about "I" and "me," and starts being about "us" and "we."

Promote Joint Ownership Quote:

"Individual commitment to a group effort: that is what makes a team work."

Moral: It's important to emphasize to all agents that every dial, no matter how seemingly insignificant at the time, is valuable to the team's success overall.

2. Promote Joint Ownership

Requires Two Things:

  • Being Vested (Shared fate creates true advocacy). A communal environment (where we rise and fall together) produces one exchange environment (where we satisfy expectations by delivering results through peer pressure).

  • Being Inclusive (Sense of partnership creates a feeling of fellowship). A partner is to be accepted into and a fellow is to be fitted into. Therefore, a partnership is an association based on a common activity, and when paired with a fellowship, it starts to take on common characteristics.

3. Be a Good Alliance Citizen Quote:

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." --Thomas Edison

Moral: Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. To maintain your Alliance citizenship you must stay active.

3. Be a Good Alliance Citizen

Requires Two Things:

  • Participation (Get busy and be more than a spectator). Don't waste your life sitting in a pew or on the sidelines; or being one of those people that just does enough to get by. Sir Issac Newton said in his First Law of Motion: "Bodies at rest tend to stay at rest."

  • Faithfulness (Stay busy by chipping away). Breaking down a task into realistic steps and only doing one at a time allows you to stay in the game and remain faithful with your focus. Neuroscience tells us that each small success triggers the brain's reward center, releasing the feel-good chemical, dopamine. This helps with out concentration and inspires us to take another faithful step.

4. Protect the Culture Quote:

"You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." --Ray Bradbury

Moral: Complacency breeds stagnation. Once people get comfortable they stop wanting to grow. This lack of want then becomes contagious, bringing high performers back down to mediocrity.

Requires Two Things:

  • Avoid Gossip (Unintentional ways of speculating without malice). Complacency will cause members to start to channel their new found nervous energy towards backseat driving and second guessing the company's core mission.

  • Avoid Rumor (Intentional ways of spreading untruths with malice). Stagnation will cause members to start to forget a pile of blame and frustration towards a scapegoat which justifies their inactivity and preconceived lack on control.

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about the four behaviors of excellence.

The 4 Behaviors of Excellence

Excellence Quote: "The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it." --Henry David Thoreau

Moral: The price of success or being the best comes with the exchange of the sacrifice you are willing to make.

The 4 Behaviors of Excellence

  1. Be Deliberate
    2. Set the Bar High
    3. Be Proactive
    4. Invest in Your Capacity
  2. Be Deliberate Quote:

"The way into the hall of success always passes through the chamber of decision. Decide to be a success; success is deliberate!" –Author Unknown

Moral: Deciding gives you permission to be deliberate.

  1. Be Deliberate

Requires Two Things:

  • Dedication to a goal (the pursuit itself becomes the center of your life's purpose).
  • Intentionality within the goal (the relentless focus only on what is attached to your purpose).
  1. Set the Bar High Quote:

"You never will know how far you can reach until you stretch your desire." --Jeff Bright

Moral: You will never honor expectations until you obtain the desire to accept challenge and the desire to seek completion.

  1. Set the Bar High

Requires Two Things:

  • Passion for a result (getting up every day with something to prove fuels your enthusiasm for achievement.
  • Ambition within the result (your aspirations or goals become driven by a distinctive result, instead of the result being dictated by your hopes and dreams). Ambition tied directly to a result soon becomes an objective and loses its' "one day" mentality.
  1. Be Proactive Quote:

"Knowing is not enough. We must apply. Willing is not enough. We must do." --Bruce Lee

Moral: Knowing gives birth to preparation which gives birth to application.
Willing gives birth to boldness which gives birth to doing.

  1. Be Proactive

Requires Two Things:

  • Preparation to run faster (serving tomorrow should not be done with the same quality as serving yesterday).
  • Intensity within the run (the ability to block out the pain of effort is essential to being enterprisingly bold).
  1. Invest in Your Capacity Quote:

"Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it." --Rabindranath Togore

Moral: Excellence is realized when your capacity is laced with readiness and filled with appropriate knowledge. You cannot drink from the cup of knowledge if your cup is already full of a big ego.

  1. Invest in Your Capacity

Requires Two Things:

  • Humbleness to the growth (taking pride in your craft is best exhibited with a big fat case of the leaning-ins).
  • Maturity within the growth (having the ability to stop speaking big things and start understanding small things).
