We are Be Legendary, using business as a source for good.
Creators of dozens of unique activities for our clients, helping over 650,000 people have a direct Be Legendary Experience and selling & supporting tens of thousands of our products that have impacted millions of people, we can say with confidence (and a bit of humility) that we are one of the best in the world at creating experiences that transform people.
We work with the top 2% of organizations through our Legendary Performance Institute (check out Shakubuku if you want to see something REALLY crazy), with mid-level leaders using our Talent Optimization and Engagement services, creation of the DIY Team Center and Team Coaching to provide teams with workouts and coaching on a regular basis.
We believe in our logo, Stanley the Snail. Each one of us has built a shell around ourselves to ‘protect’ our soft squishy interior. We poke our head out, from time to time, to look around but at the first hint of danger to our heart, we pull back into our shell. The single greatest deception is one of our own making. After spending so much time in our tiny shell, we believe that is how we must live in this world, that it is all there is. We stop poking our head out and accept our ‘reality’.
We work with organizations because we spend SO much time there, much of it miserable, and our single greatest opportunity to help people become aware of their shell is through work. If we can create amazing, trusting, resilient teams, people will begin to Live Outside their Shell and learn another way of living – one without your shell that will take you so much further and achieve so much more than you ever could by staying inside your shell, ‘protected’.
Our logo is an outside symbol of an inward goal – a constant reminder – to take chances, be vulnerable, learn from mistakes and criticism yet keep going, leaving our shell behind.
Stanley is NOT perfection. Stanley is legendary because of his imperfections, his slimy self who is unwilling to let his imperfections define who he will become and what he can achieve.
We are all Stanley, terrified of leaving our shell. Afraid of what might happen and who might hurt us. We must all choose to live a life like Stanley. Accept and embrace the challenges and become strong without our shell.
Stanley is the outward symbol of an inward goal. If you see someone with Stanley, make sure you support them and cheer them on!

A few words from recent & current clients:
This was the most impactful time I have spent for personal reflection and team building in 2019. Highlights for me: (1)immediate areas for team growth which are achievable (James assists to driving what those are and how you as a team will implement those), (2) defining how we will be a team to each other first which ultimately supports others in a more unified way, (3) Yes… and
You walk away feeling inspired to grow.
James Carter has a great way of capturing your attention with his thought provoking activities and messages. As a participant, you walk away feeling inspired to grow yourself, help others, and, as James would say, ‘Be Legendary’.
Team Building 3.0 (Now called TEAMWORX) was exactly what we were looking for, except we didn’t know it. We were initially looking for a simple event. Now we have a system to help scientifically build our teams - a game-changer for our business.
Innovative approach to meeting, training and organizational needs.
James Carter is a very creative, talented and trustworthy man who I have known since 2000. Entrepreneurial and hard-working, he is meticulous about ensuring integrity in everything he does. Not only has he been a very successful owner of a highly regarded training company that he founded, but he combines that with a social conscience and a sincere desire to help others. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is seeking an original, innovative approach to meeting ,training and organizational needs.

The VERY best way to engage people is to use the Workout Principles below. When you do, you get buy-in from your team automatically and, without directly addressing it, overcome negative and limiting mindsets about ‘team building’ and ‘this kind of stuff’. This WORKS!
Team Workout Principles
You MUST Work Out
Working out physically is a keystone habit.
Meaning, it positively changes MANY of your behaviors by taking one consistent action. You eat better, healthier food, less junk food, buy different groceries, snack less and MUCH more… Exercise is just one action you take that changes everything about you.
The exact same is true about working out as a team.
The act of ‘working out’ and working at becoming better as a team means everyone will see themselves at a team, listen more carefully, hold themselves accountable, communicate more clearly, be more vulnerable – everything you want to see in your team.
MUST Be Hard
Most training or team building is spoon-fed to groups and teams, taking great care to make it as entertaining as possible.
If you are not pushing yourself, you are not working out. At the end of a great physical workout, you are exhausted yet fulfilled.
The same is true of our activities and Team Workouts.
The activities MUST be hard in order for you to grow as a team!
When you see someone disengage or get frustrated, you simply remind them – it is SUPPOSED to be hard! – and you can watch them take a deep breath and get back to it. Because they believe (and are right) that working out will help them be better.
Must be consistent
One and Done simply won’t cut it.
You cannot go jogging once a year – and expect to be performing well in a marathon. You *MIGHT* get to the end but you would likely never do a marathon again.
In order to become better at anything, you must keep doing it. That means being a team too.
What are we talking about? Building relationships, deepening trust, practicing (mis)communication, failing and learning from it – the list goes on.
But you MUST come together on a consistent basis or it will be like the marathon above – horrible.
