Good Morning…

Good Morning...

You can do this!

You can…
run that mile
pass that test
nail that speech
rock that job
finish that project
lead that team
reach that goal
help that person
make a difference

You can do this!

P. S. I believe in you. =]


Would You Follow You?

The simple question is: Would you follow you?

-Steph 🙂

If you want to talk about something that takes real talent and teamwork, watch any video of an a cappella group performing.

Earlier this year, I randomly came across a group called Pentatonix on youtube and then continued to watch videos from the show “Sing Off”. In case you’ve never heard of the show, it is a show where a cappella groups compete, like “American Idol” or “America’s Best Dance Crew”. Pentatonix won season three of the “Sing Off”, and they are incredible.

I’ve watched them and other a cappella groups, and I seriously think “WOW”.

First off, just consider the amount of practice and skill goes into it. A member has to know pitch, tempo, etc. They have to be a master of their own voice.

Secondly, to be a member of such a group requires one to be an excellent team member. They each have to play their part well to ensure the whole group does well. Every person is so vital: sopranos, altos, tenors, baritones, basses, people to sing melody, people to carry harmony, and vocal percussionist–yes, people who are skilled at imitating sounds of instruments–what a skill! If one person is off tempo or hitting the wrong note, the whole team could unravel or the song could fall apart (a bit dramatic but true in a sense).

I just applaud all of those who are being that excellent team member in an a cappella group. Hats off to you!

So, for final thoughts and curious questions, I ask: Where do you see excellent examples of teamwork? Any examples most people don’t consider? What are your thoughts on a cappella groups and teamwork? What leadership or teamwork lessons can you find there?

P. S. Just some other a cappella videos I love if you’re interested:
