Team Dynamics Presents: BEHAVE
Aligning your VALUES with your ACTIONS

Rather than doubling down on social or political analysis, BEHAVE asks the question, “So, what are YOU going to DO about that?”

Change making work should be challenging but it should also be fun. On Behave, Trina and Alfonso talk through how to intertwine the difficult and the fun to be effective and fulfilled. They won’t be quiet about what it takes to behave.

Hosted by Team Dynamics co-founders Alfonso Wenker and Trina Olson, BEHAVE is a bi-weekly show that offers information, inspiration, and skill development meant to support folks who operate as change agents inside their own communities and organizations. Using their combined experiences in leadership with non-profits and in campaign organizing, Trina and Alfonso spend each episode digging into what it takes to be a movement builder, an effective leader, someone who works across-perspectives, is action-focused, and knows how to operate in their own integrity.

All business leaders/owners should listen to Behave

I probably average at least 10 “aha” moments per episode. As a person who holds white, cisgendered male, heterosexual, able-bodied and middle class identities, this content is both confronting and convicting in the best way possible. Trina and Alfonso give clear and concrete examples of how privilege and oppression shows up in the workplace. This is so important for leaders to be aware of and, most importantly, act on to create inclusive and equitable cultures. Such a great show!
