What’s Working…

Antonio’s support of Ari allows Ari’s really smart observations to really stand out. (example #1 below)

Their points and points of view are easy to understand, really sharp.

The humor!

What Needs Some Attention…

Sometimes they drift a bit (example #2 below)

Sometimes they devolve into cliches, which stand out more because sometimes their take is so fresh.

Sometimes they still meander into a point instead of leading with it (example #3 below)

Recommendations…

1) In prep, decide who’s going to ‘plant the flag’ and make sure it gets planted early (reminds me of an analogy from the Tv show Southland: ‘you’re contact I’m cover’)

2) Keep that humor up.  It’s one of the best things about the team.  Every segment or almost every segment.

Leading with the lead instead of ending with it (but good Antonio point about comparing team and individual athletes)…
