As a long-time baseball fan, I appreciated watching the All-Star game in person. Great experience. And that included all of the activities leading up to the game itself.
As I was taking all this in, I was thinking about my clients. What if all of their team members were
superstars? Would it make a difference? Or is just having a great team enough?
I can tell you right now that all it takes is a strong leader with vision and an able team that will follow. Of course, that assumes there’s a great product or service behind the leader.
As I see it, great talent means big egos, big paychecks, loafing, and not reaching potential.
Instead, I’ll take intense work ethic, a never-give-in attitude, and diligence over talent any day of the week.
Yes, watching the All-Star Game is fun to watch—one time a year that is. I want to see my team grit
it out together and win through a common vision, a common goal—both of which are driven by great leadership. I want the great team.
