Pre Season Culture Training with Wellington Blaze Cricket Team
Last night we kicked off the first of a series of pre-season culture training sessions with the Wellington Blaze Cricket team.
Imagine starting the pre season campaign by coming together as a team to define how you want your environment to feel and not feel this season! I was blown away again by how open and vulnerable players are with each other when going through The Emotional Culture Deck process.
Although we originally designed the ECD to be used in a corporate or business environment, it turns out that it is equally applicable in a sports team environment – because a sports team is made up of human beings, just like a business or corporate team.
Most sports teams completely neglect this conversation about how we should, or should not be feeling within our team environment. Teams tend to focus solely on shared values and behaviours yet skip the most human part of a team’s culture – the #emotionalculture of a team.
Watch this space for more updates on this pre season culture journey.
