Watching the Republican primaries is intriguing because the momentum is constantly shifting. Three different candidates have won the three primaries held to date.

Enthusiasm builds momentum. Enthusiasm is contagious; lack of enthusiasm is also contagious. When there is energy around an idea, when we are excited and optimistic about what is happening, that spreads and gains traction. We can move most anything forward.

Conversely, when morale is low it is like a virus that spreads. Energy wanes, productivity declines and detachment sets in. Things become routine or we go through the motions.

While voter enthusiasm is an important factor in determining a primary victory, your enthusiasm and that of your colleagues impact the results your organization will achieve. How are you polling?
