So very often, leaders in teams feel that individuals in their team are “holding back” – and not giving their all. Do you have a situation like that?
Facing the Giants – is one movie that you should get your team to watch together. Broadly, it is the story of a losing coach with an underdog football team that faces their giants of fear and failure on and off the field to surprising results. Watch the video below:
Grant Taylor is a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, he has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Facing the Giants is a powerful experience for the whole team inspiring them to live with faith and give their very best at all times.
As always – do see it with the team – discuss it – and let us know how the conversations went!
