One windy March day, the Mayor of the town decided to take a stroll through the park. He ran into a small boy who was flying the biggest and most beautiful kite he had ever seen.

It soared so high and gentle across the sky that the mayor was sure it could be seen in the next city. This little town didn’t have very many things that were spectacular, so the Mayor decided to award a “key to the city” to the one responsible for such a beautiful thing.

“Who is responsible for flying this kite?” the Mayor asked.

“I am,” said the little boy holding on with all his might to the beautiful big kite. He said, “I made this huge kite myself, with my own hands. I painted all of the colorful pictures on it, and I fly it!”

“I am!” said the wind. “It is my breeze that keeps it in the air flying so high and beautiful. Unless I blow on it, it will not fly at all. I fly it!”

“Not so,” claimed the kite’s tail. “I make it sail and give it stability against the wind’s blowing gusts. Without me, the kite would spin out of control and not even the boy could save it from crashing to the earth. I fly the kite!”


Who flies the kite? They all do, don’t they?

In the day-to-day hustle and bustle of work, its easy to forget that everyone flies the kite. Without the team, the leader would never be successful. Without a good leader the team would fail. Both need each other. Each person on the team needs one another as well. They all fly it!
