Just as a team of climbers typically hire a Sherpa to guide them through a Mount Everest climb, the principle role of the TEAMM Guide is to walk alongside you and your team, provide expertise gained from past experience, and to direct your team only as needed. As with an Everest expedition, you and your team are the ones who will need to work as a team, wrestle with difficult decisions and ultimately complete the climb.

While participating in the TEAMM experience you will be assisted

by a TEAMM Guide. Rather than using the title "trainer" or "coach,"

which does define some of the function provided during the TEAMM process,

the main role served is as a guide.
