"We don't always get to choose the role we play, but we do get to choose how we play it."

- Sami Jo

Building a Team is challenging, but effective Teams are the key to business and organizational success. Sports are the classic metaphor for for the effectiveness of Teams. As businesses and organizations face more complex challenges and opportunities, multi disciplinary and diverse Teams become more important.

The biggest difference between me and other Olympians is the whole idea of being placed in situations that were not the way I had envisioned living my Olympic dream. Not playing in the final game in Salt Lake and then not receiving a medal in Torino forced me to focus on "ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE TEAM".

For 20+ years of working with businesses and organization, I've helped thousands create effective teams embrace their role within their team while encouraging and inspiring others to achieve success together.
