Consider the Ant

When it comes to getting something done, which is more important, strength or teamwork?

Consider the ant (Pro 30:25, Pro 6:6).

Give a colony of garden ants a week and a pile of dirt, and they will transform it into an underground structure the height of a skyscraper in an ant-scaled city. They use a complex decentralized system with interactions from huge numbers of individuals. It’s not about strength. It’s not about a leader barking orders.

They use chemical markers to give clues to the others about the optimal task to do at any given moment.

As a leader what clues or signals could you help a team develop so they function as a determined, effective, tightly knit team?
