Firefighters, police and military units identify themselves through the use of patches on their uniforms. I was recently at a Firefighters Museum and was able to see a display of hundreds of different patches – all in one place. Even though they all represented firefighting teams in Minnesota, they all displayed their own personality and uniqueness.

If your profession wore a patch on a uniform, what elements would you want it to convey? How could such a common identity serve to foster team pride? You don’t have to wear a literal patch to create one or to convey the intent behind it. Maybe it could be your next team builder to create one!
