Imagine if your favourite hockey team said, "...but we did training LAST year...!" 😊
Each time you run Alpha, do team training! It's a time for team "building" not only training. Yes, getting together with your team is essential each and every time you run Alpha and is absolutely vital to a successful Alpha.
