“A dog in the hunt doesn’t know it has fleas” is an old saying that I probably just butchered a bit. You may have heard some similar version at some point.

Every team has challenges, but the ones that make it through those challenges tend to be those who are in hot pursuit of something bigger. They’re in the hunt.

They’re not simply avoiding problems, trying actively to fix issues, or even those looking to improve things. They’re the ones who are able to some extent see beyond the current situations to what’s ahead.

Notice I said they’re “not simply…” in the here and now. Meaning, they ARE very much living in the present: avoiding, fixing, and improving, but they’re not ONLY there.

What is your team in the hunt for? Might be a good idea to discuss as a team.
