„I’ve had the luck to meet Ali at the exact moment my relationship with Lindy Hop would take a turn from being an occasional hired teacher, to become a scene builder, team leader and school developer.David Afonso
Ali’s influence was, and still is, nothing but inspiring. The way he deals with people, but specially how he manages his own SwingStep team is a staple of impressive skills.
As a team leader, I felt an amazing feeling of „being comprehended“ while reading this book. It was like mind reading. A lot of the issues I was having inside of our teaching team, are here clearly presented in a solvable manner. Being a social animal is not easy. Building a real team, even harder. But this book gave me a lot of tools that I can conscious use to identify, address and solve, in a peaceful manner, past and future conflicts.
One of the most useful readings so far… Only wish it had been around for longer.“
