The Friends Exercise

This week, I was grateful to see the two new partners with shiny eyes — they did “The Friends Exercise”. This exercise comes from Simon Sinek’s book “Find Your Why”.

What should people say at your funeral?

The next step at OnSaPa is to go from the Statement into one's personal vision. When I asked the funeral question, we had a big laugh after the response. It matched with the Why-Statement one by one—especially because it was a spontaneous joke by the partner.

“Tell me, if you could listen… what should people say at your funeral?”

The response came with a sarcastic tone:

“Finally… he’s gone.”

Now look at this: In the partners Why-Statement, it’s to make life easy and pleasurable for people in a playful way. In the joke, it’s exactly the same. That was a key moment for both of us. We could see that the “Why” is our powerful underlying driver, with jokes, in our work, in our kitchen, and so on.

The next step is on Tuesday

Both partners found their Why. And I’m glad that their why-drafts fit OnSaPa’s vision. Both are driven to contribute to a planet of harmony and progress in their own way. I’m very curious how things will connect.
