How do teammates shift into the We Gear?

  • Acknowledge the existence of the Me Gear where everything is about you and for your own personal benefit.
  • Recognize the significance of Clutch moments before you shift gears and act on impulses.
  • Consider the ripple effect that your choices will have on your teammates prior to making decisions.
  • Understand the power of We and the idea that We is greater than Me.
  • Prioritize the various teams to which you belong, so you have the clarity to identify your true purpose.

What does it mean to be a teammate who’s A.L.I.V.E.?

  • Active—Be a person of action and have the courage to confront sources of toxicity.
  • Loyal—Stay away from cliques and honor your commitment to the team.
  • Invested—Build bonds by taking a genuine interest in what inspires the other members on your team.
  • Viral—Understand emotional contagion and master your body language so your energy spreads through the team.
  • Empathetic—Make an effort to understand the intent of the action and what it feels like to be your teammate.
