Shared Joy of the Inner Circle


On a legacy team, there is a shared joy of the inner circle, which means it’s selective, restrictive, limited to team members only. You’ll have a hard time explaining your legacy team experience to your spouse, your neighbor, or your friend outside of work. People often say to me, “That sounds pretty exclusive,” and my response is, “Exactly!” That’s exactly what it’s supposed to be – exclusive! Why? Because when you’re in the huddle and calling the play – it’s just you and your teammates. You’re not huddled with a fan from the stands, an owner, a senior vice president, general manager or booster – it’s just you and your team and at that moment – it’s exclusive.
