Your team’s culture is revealed…

…through their emotions.

Not your emotions — theirs.

Average teams have wrong emotions about wrong stuff. Elite teams have right emotions about right stuff.

Leaders who are soft on their teams enable wrong emotions.   So do leaders who are hard on their teams while soft on themselves.

For better or for worse, a culture is described by what teams tolerate as normal.   For better or for worse, a culture is defined by what teams believe is normal.

Whether you are a leader or a teammate, if you want to improve your culture, be the improvement you want to see in your culture.

And align it with the right emotion. In Solomon’s wisdom there is:

A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.

This is why we practice intentionally, deliberately and consistently first one-on-one with leaders, then later with leaders and their teams.   Together, we practice transforming beliefs about what we tolerate as normal.   And together, we practice transforming wrong emotions about wrong stuff to right emotions about right stuff.

With belief and with emotion, much is caught, not just taught. With belief and with emotion, much is subconscious. We want belief and emotion in BTL cultures to be consciously caught and taught.

BTL leaders are believers, and leaders are connectors.

Together we transform.   Always two-gether.
