  • 1. The facilitator asks team members to stand quietly in a circle and to allow themselves to feel relaxed.
  • 2. S/he asks them to visualise the team as a 'learning ecosystem' that is more important than its individual members.
  • 3. S/he asks them to see themselves as (equally important) individual resources for the benefit of the whole.
  • 4. S/he says:
    • a) Close your eyes, stand as vertically, and as upright, as possible, then 'hold onto the experience'.
    • b) Now, lean forward as far as possible without falling over.
    • c) Return to your upright position and feel the difference.
    • d) Now, lean backward as far as possible without falling over.
    • e) Return to your upright position and feel the difference.
  • 5. (The experience of standing upright denotes your state of calm readiness to contribute when needed.)
  • 6. (The experience of leaning forward denotes your ability to fully commit to contributing what is needed).
  • 7. (The experience of leaning backward denotes your sense that, in this moment, you should defer to others.
