When we think of rings, we think of marriage, the ultimate symbol of commitment to shared ideals and a life to be shared. We can also think of our connection with others, colleagues and team members, as a commitment borne out of a shared and meaningful purpose.

So how would you assess your current fellowship with others? Be it as a leader or team member, what binds you together? Are you conveniently co-habiting to get to your own goals? Or are you like Frodo and his gang of fellows – working together to achieve something really important to you all?

The thing is, we need this deep connection. It gets us all through the good times and the bad. It helps us to build a team and rally best performance. It’s how we change the world. So gather your motley crew and reconnect with why you are all together. The world will, somehow, thank you one day.
