I talk a lot about accountability. I found this great story that I thought did an amazing job of communicating what so many of us are guilty of. I hope it helps clarify why it is important to not adapt company policy to individual needs. Enjoy the story!
Twenty years ago, in Nashville, Tennessee, during the first week of January, 1996, more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA’s convention.
While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment – “John Scolinos is here? Oh, man, worth every penny of my airfare.”
