Inspire the Importance of Your Cause

LincolnGIVE YOUR PEOPLE THE SENSE OF PURPOSE THEY NEED TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS. 

 Abraham Lincoln framed the purpose of the Civil War for his people in a way that made them feel like they were critically important to the outcome of not only the conflict – but also to human history; allowing them to believe the Union’s cause was a righteous one; one that everyone could be a part of.

Lincoln’s message to his allies at home and abroad was that this was not only about America’s survival; this was about a free people’s ability to rule themselves; this was about the hope of mankind; this was the real purpose of the domestic struggle they were in.

Lincoln’s Staff Meetings Demonstrated the Good and the Bad

Healy, Abraham Lincoln 1887phCABINET MEMBERS CONTRIBUTED, BUT GENERALLY FELT THEY WERE WASTING THEIR TIME.

On the one hand, Abraham Lincoln did what a good manager should have done before the advent of email.  He asked for feedback and collaboration on how best to execute a decision he had already made, and he only called cabinet meetings when he felt they were needed.
