During the holidays it can be hard to stay on a healthy track, especially while working in an office.

Once this group buys in, they must carry this message to the rest of the team. The stars have to explain to their teammates how they all fit in to the grand scheme of winning or accomplishing the goals. Everyone must show respect and understanding for their teammates.
