Set the Table
There’s something special that happens when we show the ability to celebrate someone else; the relationship grows, the recipient has his or her confidence boosted and a healthy culture gets cultivated. All three components are components leaders work to help create.
It’s important we begin to train our athletes and get them into the habit of celebrating others. They need to develop the “eye of celebrations” that can see and quickly identify reasons to celebrate others.
Through this exercise, it’ll help produce a culture of celebration in a fun and unique way with your players. Allow this to initiate the momentum of being a team filled with individuals who celebrate each other.
