Who is the Diffuser?
The diffuser is the player who can alleviate or reduce pressure and see the lighter side of a tense situation. Quite possibly the least appreciated of all six winning key elements, this individual comes to the rescue when a moment becomes real. In other words, when the level of tension and urgency increases to a point where the “fight or flight” mechanism may come into play, this person is the steady eddy who can keep their cool and instinctively calm the waters. The diffuser is vital to the team that performs well under pressure.
