SPORTS AND BUSINESS GO HAND IN HAND


SPORTS AND BUSINESS GO HAND IN HAND.

The author of the blog post at the link above asks us to consider: have businesses swung the pendulum too far in emphasizing  applicants’ being a “good team player” over their ability to perform with excellence as an individual?

A proposition worth considering.

Your thoughts?

    While reading this post, the first and only athlete I could think of from an American point of view is the great basketball player, LeBron James. He comes to mind because he is at the peak of his physical game, will probably go inducted into the Hall of Fame, has a high IQ, can lift an entire team on his back on any given night, but still chooses to be unselfish and does anything he can to encourage his whole team to work together to achieve greater goals such as multiple championships. Although LeBron does not have any college education, he has still made sure to always take the more educated approach to his career, whether it be for the team he plays with or who his sponsors are.
