jeff goins (a graduate of the Cartel’s Youth Ministry Coaching Program) wrote a fantastic post about the difference between a club and a cartel. click through to read it here.
a few selections:
The difference between a club and a cartel appears to be a matter of semantics, but it’s a lot more than that. And the difference holds the secret to making a difference as a leader and communicator in the world.
A club is a group with a shared interest. A cartel is an agreement among competitors. Clubs are about exclusion and competition. Cartels are about inclusion and collaboration.
Three marks of a cartel:
- A cartel is not an organization. It’s a collaboration.
- A cartel is generous with its resources. It rewards insiders and encourages outsiders.
- A cartel isn’t for everyone. But it is for someone.
so good, and so in line with who we at The Youth Cartel hope to be!
