The pressure is mounting.
The game’s on the line.
Everyone is tight. Chaos is the norm in a heated athletic event.
The crowd can be deafening.
How do we counter that?
What do teams do?
They huddle up.
The closer we, as teammates, can get, the easier it is to block out the noise, and communicate effectively with our team. We should huddle up more often, even if it’s casual, and even if it means doing so online. Huddles solve many problems proactively. We don’t quite know what the huddles of 2020 should look like with COVID-19 still spreading, but I’m assuming the need for clearer communication isn’t going anywhere.
Huddle often, speak clearly, lead benevolently.
