I recently facilitated a session for my team at our quarterly team gathering to introspect about who they are as a team and how they are working together. We’ve done this session during a transition phase where one team member was about to leave while a new team member just joined the team. Both were present in the room.

The following beautiful little story got introduced to me during one of the many lovely evenings with my partner, where we sit in our lounge, read books and have discussions about life, over a glass of wine and a bowl of salt & vinegar crisps.
