Another Cool Email from Israel!

Hi everybody!

I wanted to share another cool email with you. Fabrice and I appreciate comments like these.

Dear David and Fabrice,

Thank you both for the pod cast! Who came up with the idea? It is an amazing contribution to folks like me!!

Each episode is incredibly enriching. You both have a wonderful way of collaborating and explain the TEAM model so clearly.

I love the way you each respect one another and deeply admire the fact that you preach the importance of the death of the ego.

This approach is unfortunately so rare in our field.

Please please keep them coming!


Thanks, Yael. And for the record, Fabrice came up with the idea of doing a Podcast togeher one day when we were chatting on my driveway after a Sunday hike, I believe!
