Loyalty & Expertise, Together
Who the dog departs with is who the dog returns with. The stars never depart without the moon. When the snail moves, the shell moves along with it. Orisa Lifestyle is defined by loyalty and service. Any sustainable initiative will require the collection of people who are loyal to one another and loyal to the cause as well. Loyalty is a function of trust. It must be cultivated deliberately and reinforced diligently. Without loyalty you cannot succeed in Orisa Lifestyle.
If loyalty alone was enough, organizations, families and businesses would not crumble as quickly as they do. In addition to intense loyalty you need to surround yourself with people steeped in relevant expertise, which includes knowledge, training and skill. When we wish to know about weaving, we consult the weaver. When we wish to know about about carving, we consult the carver. Whatever is being done is known only by the doer. If you fail to attract and organize capable people, you cannot succeed in Orisa Lifestyle.
As a Catalyst, you must practice discernment as you select people for your team. Each member must have varying degrees of loyalty and expertise, according to their assigned positions. This implies that you know the nature of each position necessary for a high performance team, be it a family, temple or business. Certainly, leadership is not a casual undertaking.
