Tips for Being a Successful Team Captain

Team Captains Motivate

MOTIVATOR Team members will be working hard to make changes to their lifestyle and will at times be discouraged. It is your role to make sure they don't lose sight of their ultimate goal and remind them of the important reasons why they are making these changes.

Team Captains Lead

LEADER Change is hard, but working together as a team can make change easier. Help your team to come together for a single cause: better health. Success is much easier when you have your friends and colleague by your side. Lead your team by example.

Team Captains Listen

LISTENER One of the best things you can do is to listen to your team members. By listening to their needs, you will be able to help them make change in a way that is best for them. Help empower your team members to make healthy choices by validating their needs, their ideas, and their commitment to better health.
