							As a pilot, commander, and demonstration leader for the Thunderbirds, JV  Venable gained key insights into team performance. Organizations need leaders  who will minimize emotional friction and the gaps in alignment that slow teams  down. But leaders can't do it all. To illustrate this, JV borrows a phenomenon  common to racing and aerobatic teams alike: drafting. When teams of bikes,  cars, or jets are aligned and move in perfect formation, everyone shares the  load of breaking resistance. But if the team is misaligned, or gaps between  members grow by mere inches, the draft falters and the load falls back on the  leader. Everybody loses. JV gives teams and team leaders new tools for  improving alignment and fostering closeness through commitment, loyalty, and  trust.
