Therapeutic approaches allowing for that transformation are also explained. The program has taught Frank to Think First before acting so he can think about 1) the Team he is with at the moment, 2) what goals he and the Team might want to accomplish, and 3) what mutually beneficial choices of words and actions he might make.
