We could all learn something about teamwork from fire ants. Yes, those
aggressive, little insects with a nasty sting. Recent research by the Georgia
Institute of Technology has discovered that during a flood, the colony unites
to form a watertight communal raft. Their teamwork allows the ants to create
this raft and float away safely to different locations.
An individual ant will struggle and flail in a flood, while an ant raft can
survive for months. Not only are the ants stronger together, they are more buoyant.
When researchers submerged the raft, the ants pulled together even more
tightly, working together to maintain their watertight craft.
There is a lesson here for us. During adversity, it takes the efforts of an
entire community to hang in there and figure out a way to get the job done. The
worse the situation gets, the tighter we, like the ants, need to stick
together. Our survival and well-being depend on it.
If fire ants can figure it out, surely we can. With the current challenges
facing us, we need to stick together and develop solutions now more than ever.
That's why I have the team at ASBA focused on identifying and implementing
solutions to help our business community.
So let’s hang tough together, help each other out and make things happen. Our
raft is already forming, time to get on board.
