THE IKF IS ABOUT TEAMWORK!
"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common
vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational
objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.
When a team of dedicated individuals makes a commitment to act as one...the
sky's the limit. Coming together is a beginning... keeping together is
progress... working together is a success. Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing
that ever has. The challenge for every organization is to build a feeling of
oneness, of dependence on one another...because the question is usually not how
well each person works, but how well they work together. When we stand tall in
defense of our principles, the tides of adversity eventually subside. Strength
is derived from unity. The range of our collective vision is far greater when
individual insights become one. Which all Comes Down to... Teamwork means that
we share a common ideal and embrace a common goal. Regardless of our
differences, we strive shoulder to shoulder, confident in one another's faith,
trust and commitment. In the end, teamwork can be summed up in five short
"We believe in each other."
THE IKF WAS BUILT BY
He failed in business in '31. He
was defeated for state legislator in '32. He tried another business in '33. It
failed. His fiancee died in '35. He had a nervous breakdown in '36. In '43 he
ran for congress and was defeated. He tried again in '48 and was defeated again.
He tried running for the Senate in '55. He lost The next year he ran for Vice
President and lost. In '59 he ran for the Senate again and was defeated. In
1860, the man who signed his name A. Lincoln, was elected the 16th President of
the United States... The difference between history's boldest accomplishments,
and its most staggering failures is often, simply, the diligent will to
persevere. The power to shape the future is earned through persistence. No other
quality is as essential to success. It is the sandpaper that breaks down all
resistance and sweeps away all obstacles. It is the ability to move mountains
one grain of sand at a time. Which all Comes Down to...
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the
stream always wins...not through strength, but through Persistence."
THE IKF BELIEVES IN
"The growth of any
organization is nurtured one customer at a time. It takes months to find a
customer...and seconds to lose one. The sea of change can pull customers in many
directions. It is our responsibility to light the way and take care of them...
before the competition does. Always give people more than they expect to get.
The foundation of any great company is rooted in service. It is the nurturing
force which fuels all growth. Which all Comes Down to...
If we don't take care of the customer...somebody else will."
THE IKF WELCOMES GOOD
"Every morning in Africa, a
gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will
be killed...every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest
gazelle or it will starve to death. Which all Comes Down to...
On the road to success, you can be sure of one thing...there
is never a crowd on the extra mile.
THE IKF BELIEVES IN
"The best way to predict the
future...is to create it. An organization that is committed to creative
collaboration will ride the wave of the future. They will go beyond the realm of
assumptive thinking and welcome the dawn of innovation...because there is
nothing more empowering than an idea whose time has come. Without change there
can be no breakthroughs. Without breakthroughs there can be no future.
Everything that can be invented already has been. This statement was released in
1899 by the U.S. Patent Office. If these 'experts' ran the world we would still
be sitting in the dark. It is our responsibility to shatter outdated thinking
and explore the realm of the untested; it is here that breakthrough
opportunities are waiting to be discovered. Which all Comes Down to...
If you're not riding the wave of change... you'll
find yourself beneath it.
THE IKF BELIEVES IN RISK!
"A ship in the harbor is safe...but that's not what ships
were made for. The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles
have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore... unlike the mediocre,
intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible... it is
with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors... to
meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown. What we can easily
see is only a small percentage of what is possible. Imagination is having the
vision to see what is just below the surface; to picture that which is
essential, but invisible to the eye. Which all Comes Down to...
Do not follow where the path may lead...go instead where there
is no path and leave a trail!"
"True leaders act with courage,
stand tall in the face of adversity and go where few have gone before...because
they know that example is the greatest school of humanity."
The Nature of Leadership: "You will
find true success in those efforts that captivate your heart and soul. Belief
fuels passion, and passion rarely fails."
"True leaders are not those who
strive to be first but those who are first to strive and who give their all for
the success of the team. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the
plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's
commitment, the power of the team is unleashed."
"Those who are victorious plan
effectively and change decisively. They are like a great river that maintains
its course but adjusts its flow...they have form but are formless. They are
skilled in both planning and adapting and need not fear the result of a thousand
battles; for they win in advance, defeating those that have already lost. "
Sun Tzu, Chinese Warrior
"Those who preserve their integrity
remain unshaken by the storms of daily life. They do not stir like leaves on a
tree or follow the herd where it runs. In their mind remains the ideal attitude
and conduct of living. This is not something given to them by others. It is
their roots...It is a strength that exists deep within them."
Anonymous Native American
"A Leader stands
out by the nature of their commitment, and the integrity of their character."
