Indian Run

Indian Run

An Indian Run is when a team jogs in a single file line and then the last person in line sprints to the front. Once she reaches the front, the cycle repeats with the new last person in the line.

I think it’s a mighty fine metaphor for how teams can do better in the work place.

The team gets stronger when those in the back push themselves to the front. It’s one more way the law of averages makes sense.

Far better to turn laggards into leaders than to make the front of the pack run a little faster.
