Use the Prime Six technique to process emotional blocks when it comes to building teams as a leader or manager. Just pick any related challenge and work through the emotions using "I feel" and "I think" statements, ending with pride and courage. Here is an example video and further below is an application lesson to help you further.

Doing the Prime Six Solo
When a playing partner is not available, you can use the Prime Six technique for emotional freedom on your own (you will eventually need another person to share with). All it requires is the deck and journal. Follow these steps:
- Lay out the Prime Six in order.
- Starting with anger, write out your "I feel" and "I think" statements on any challenge you have with making money.
- Answer, "What does pride look like for you in this?" and write it down.
- Answer, "What would courage look like in this?" and write it down.
- Write down one action step of courage you will take.
- Find someone to share with and read everything you have written down. IMPORTANT: Ask that person to simply listen and acknowledge your courage. Advice can come later.
