While standing on the sidelines at a football tournament my son was playing in today, it struck me how powerful positive communication can be in a team situation. I delighted in hearing him and his team mates – 11 and 12 year old boys – praising and encouraging one another as they pulled together to perform at their best. There were no individual egos at work and no clamouring for individual glory. This was about a coming together of young boys who do what they love and love what they do…as a team.
Well done boys! A well deserved win 🙂
