On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright discusses the importance and power of association.

The Collaboration Formula: Affiliation + Association = Collaboration

Affiliation (Finding connection where First Impressions matter): the act of engaging or bonding with comes with a need for attachment.

Association (Finding fit where Leaning In matters): the act of consorting or joining with comes with a need of inclusiveness.

Collaboration (Finding common ground where Shared Values matter): the product of fellowship or community comes with a need of unity. 

Affiliation: "Unhealthy cultures create disconnect. Healthy cultures create social bonds." -- Simon Sinek

Moral: Affliction based on disconnection will eventually turn into mistrust and disloyalty, but affliction based on a social bond will forever produce management and invite attachment.

Association: "He that walks with wisemen shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." -- Proverbs 13:20

Moral: Associating with negative people creates negative thought, and associating with positive people creates positive thought.

Collaboration: "Without the sense of collaboration with people of like mind ... life would have seemed to me empty." -- Albert Einstein

Moral: The power of all minds fixed on a common cause is endless and fulfilling. 

The 2 Types of Associations:

1. Communal Relationships- close relationships in which members suspend their need to equity and exchange, giving support to the member in order to meet his or her needs, and without consideration of costs to themselves.

2. Exchange Relationships- reciprocal relationships in which each of the members keep track of his or hers contributions to the partnership.

YIN (cold/fluid) and YANG (warm/dry) and the concept of Dualism:

It describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary and interconnected in the natural (Alliance) world.

"Wheat field is Yang, but once it is harvested, it becomes Yin."

"Communal is Yang, but once it is exchanged, it becomes Yin."

Nothing is completely Yin or completely Yang. Each aspect contains the beginning point for the other aspect. For example, day becomes night and then night becomes day. Yin and Yang are interdependent upon each other so that the definition of one requires the definition for the other to be complete.

Yin (job mentality) relies on Yang (moral aurthority) as Yang (your word) relies on Yin (your effort).

There must be balance between the two. A river (the fluid Yin) must be willing to flow into a basin (the dry Yang); and the warm basin must be willing to accept the cold river.

The Alliance's Secret Recipe: Job Mentality + Moral Authority = A Healthy and Thriving Culture

Job Mentality (Do Your Job): Living up to your expectations by honoring your commitment to work with the Exchange Relationship.

Moral Authority (Walking With Maturity): Providing a high character example by promoting a safe environment within the Communal Relationship.

That leads to a Healthy and Thriving Culture.

The Alliance's healthy and thriving culture is where members feel everything is going to be alright. If you make enough noise someone will hear you. It is where members accept the calling to act, and no one shirks their duties to "Do the Do."

Our culture requires that we "Have Fun, Make Money and Make A Difference."
