As any military personnel would know, a war room is where military leaders meet to study maps showing the current status of troops in battle and plan a strategy against their enemy. In the movie, Miss Clara’s war room is a prayer closet where she spends time asking for God’s guidance.
Several days after viewing the movie, I still find myself thinking about it. Are there other areas in our life where we could benefit from a war room? Merriam-Webster defines a war room as:
- A room at a military headquarters where maps showing the current status of troops in battle are maintained.
- A room (i.e. a business headquarters) used for conferences and planning that is often specially equipped (i.e. with computer or charts).
Working together to move the business forward will inspire your employees and keep them engaged.
By the way, I did enjoy the movie!
