At the end of a recent team meeting each team member was given a puzzle piece. It was explained that by itself, each piece had very little meaning; however, when the pieces are put together they are complete and powerful. Each piece was unique, just as each person is unique and has their own gift. When the pieces of the puzzle come together, they become much more significant, just like this Olympic team. Individually we represent ourselves, but when we all come together we represent a country. If just one piece was missing, the entire puzzle was ruined.
