The movie Miracle is without a doubt one of the best examples of how a team goes through the four stages of development and ultimately the community spirit appears. Herb Brooks (played by Kurt Russell) brings in a new player just a few weeks before the beginning of the 1980 Olympic opening ceremony. The players are upset and the chemistry of the team is compromised. This comes to a head when four team members ask to see Herb and tell him it is not fair. Herb asks why not. One player responds with - "we're a family" and this is the point that shows Herb he has a solid team that is committed to each other. And after all isn't that what the community spirit is all about?

1) You must be committed to your dreams and goals. We are not talking about "fingers-crossed-wishing". We are talking that unshakable, gut level determination. If you don't have this, if you are just "hoping" this will work, don't even get started. No successful person starts a business on a whim, or with a mere fantasy.

Risk-taking. Leaders sometimes take a fall-some are harder than others. But if they do not risk their neck and their reputation, then they will not also learn the value of victory. Young leaders have to come to terms with the level of risk they can take comfortably. They also need to learn how to establish safety nets in case some of their risky maneuvers fail.
