“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.” Shakespeare – Henry V, Act IV, Scene 3
Shed blood with them. In a sense, that’s what it takes to join a team that is already a band of brothers. But earning the right to shed blood with them is a non-trivial task. You have to show up, share their purpose, put the team ahead of yourself, build deep relationships, co-create in line with the unwritten rules on the way.
