Your Team


We featured this quote last year when the  Red Sox became the  2013 World Series Champs.  I thought of it  while working with a team  littered with people who rolled their eyes a lot, complained openly about the owner and  made snide remarks about “the way this company does things”.  Whenever positions became open,  these same people claimed that no one was interested.  “No one wants to work here”, they said.   These people – they were great people, talented people.  But if they were ever excited about being on the team, doing what the team did, they had lost it.  And then – they were gone.

As leaders-left-behind worked to replace those who had left, talking with candidates about the opportunities ahead, people got excited.  And all of the sudden there were lots of people interested in being on the team.  And whenever the leaders said, “We only want to hire people who WANT to be here, who are excited about the opportunity!”,  prospective and current team members became more excited and clearly embraced the opportunities.

All the difference in the world.
