    • They form a team and begin work
    • They work long and hard, with great purpose and urgency
    • They bring the solution to the distressed
    • The distressed are able to free themselves of the shackles
    • And there was much rejoicing!
    • A bond was formed, between the team and the people, which could not be broken.
  • Exercise: Breaking it Down
