Because someone’s got to do it. We have a global fascination with superheroes: the two top-grossing movies of 2014 to date are Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: Winter Soldier, our children dress up as Spiderman and Wonder Woman for Halloween, and Comic Cons (Comic conventions) have sprung up all over the country.
What we don’t have is anyone helping us to act like superheroes. Some people think that that’s because being a superhero is mainly about having superpowers – it’s not. There are superheroes such as Batman, Green Arrow, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, who have no superpowers, and yet are commonly accepted as superheroes.
My definition of superhero is this:
Someone who rises to the occasion, no matter how difficult, using all of their skills and abilities to make the world a better place.
By this definition, all of us have the potential to be superheroes.
Superhero Team Training exists because I believe that all of us can be superheroes in our jobs, in our teams, in our families, and in the world. We offer trainings for teams and coaching for individuals to help them develop into the superheroes that they have always, deep down, wanted to be.
