An Excellent example of Cross functional Collaboration.

Read on .....




There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors and Prizes.



One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn.

The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.



"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with you each year?" -The reporter asked.

"Why brother" the farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns." The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life.



His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor's corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!



Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others live well.

The value of a life is not measured by how long one lived it is measured by how many lives it touches.

Moral

“ Success does not happen in isolation, it is most often a participatory and collective process.”
