Are you a Fire Starter?
- 10 Comment
Way back in my health care days we worked with a consultant who taught me about being a fire starter. It is a concept I’ve kept in the back of my mind since learning about it. I’d like to share it with you now in the hope it speaks to you, too.
A Fire Starter is a person who keeps the true essence of the organization alive and flourishing. Fire Starters ignite the flame that guides and supports the organization.
In early civilization fire was essential to life. People used fires to keep warm, cook food, light the way in darkness, and as protection from enemies. Without fire people would perish. Within each village (or organization) there were people whose primary job was to keep the fire burning. They taught others how to carry on the practice of keeping the flame burning, which allowed villages to prosper and grow. – Quint Studer (www.studergroup.com)
The public relations industry needs Fire Starters. Will you be one?
