Here is some of the core training content from our training 02/22/18.


Group to TEAM Core Premise – You only have two options: 1-group or 2-TEAM.

Everything you do, say, think or feel is either keeping you in group or elevating into the experience of TEAM.


The Difference Between a Group and a TEAM

When people are operating from the mindset of “group”, their choices organize around “self-interest”.  When people operate as a team, they are organizing their choices around a “shared interest”.  Group is the default when people come together, while TEAM is a daily commitment and is an experienced that is earned.

Team is not a destination TEAM is an EXPERIENCE you get to keep creating

This is a hugely important point to remind your team members as it has a direct impact on how our daily communication impacts our ability to generate the experience of team. 

The question that our program constantly elicits is:

"Are you going to do what it takes to earn the right to call yourself a TEAM?"




There are three levels of respect that we discussed in our training. The first two levels DO NOT GENERATE TEAM. These levels actually keep people “locked” in “group”. While these first two levels are generally considered a form of respect, they lack the energetic qualities of generosity and reciprocity. The first two levels of respect are rooted in defensive patters that perpetuate group. Individuals caught in this lower region on the “respect scale” regularly rationalize and defend their behavior by referring to it as respect. Make it your practice to commit to holding your TEAM in high regard. Remember you can disagree with someone and still hold them in high regard. You can misunderstand someone and still hold them in high regard and you can make the powerful choice to hold them in high regard even when you feel like they are not holding you in that space. Your choice will give that person an amazing opportunity to shift their energy to join you. Practice this at the start or end of your meetings. Say this to your team members. Remind yourself as you are speaking. Good luck and have fun!
