The coach of a new football team was asked to donate an item for a fundraising auction. He contributed the team’s jersey with the Number 1 on it.  “No one on my team wears #1,” Coach Regalado is reported to have said.

In that small action, the coach shared more about his values and team philosophy than could be captured in an entire playbook.

Are your behaviors consistent with the culture you are trying to create? Take a lesson from this coach and deploy small actions to create a big impact.
