Tug-of-war is a perfect example of the power of alignment or vice versa. This dynamic game costs nothing, is easy to set up, and still highly competitive like other games. Scratch a line in the middle with a healed shoe, split the group in two with each team hold on to each ends of the rope, and on command everyone starts to pull. The biggest and heaviest member is the "anchor" positioned toward the end of the rope. If you ever get a chance to play this game, know this that the size, weight, and strength of the group are not the most important indicators of who might win the game.
Alignment is the winning factor where all the team members pull together. At the point when everyone’s backs, feet, and waists are aligned and pointing the same direction, then the team becomes unified. The combined power of an aligned team amplifies every individual’s commitment exponentially. In this game, when even one of the teammate pulls at a different angle, the whole group loses their combined force and, instead of winning, they make every effort but struggle.
Team rhythm doesn't happen immediately. It takes time, focus and teamwork.
Strategy needs commitment and on the whole takes over 5 seconds to substantiate itself out.
Teamwork means everyone pulls together, at the same time, and in the same direction.
STRATEGICAL over Tactical…wins every time
