While it’s easy to dismiss sales team names as a nonessential element of team membership, the fact remains that a relevant and unified sales team name creates alignment and helps foster a sense of unity within a group dynamic.

As for the story behind the Hounds in the Pound, the company Brent worked for was a software start-up that was expanding fast, and the organization was simply outgrowing the tenth floor office space it occupied. The founders were in the midst of expanding and carving out their team and, simply put, the sales team went from an airy tenth floor open concept to no windows in a dingy basement in the span of an afternoon.
What Brent and his fellow sales reps discovered was that they didn’t require a fancy office—or really, an office at all—to be successful and enjoy their work environment. They had t-shirts made up for their team, set up a hockey net, aptly named themselves The Hounds in the Pound, and excelled as the number one team in their organization.
When their office space finally expanded, the basement dwellers didn’t want to leave. There was a strong sense of alignment and a cohesive team identity that they wanted to protect. “It was the best team I’ve ever been on because we all cared and we were all in it together,” he explains. The accomplishments of the Hounds in the Pound remains his favorite team to this day.
