My Story

It’s About the People, the Leadership, and the Journey

A lifetime spent trying to get somewhere and reach the top of the mountain, only to discover the view from the top, was not at all what I thought it would be. The passion to win and to be the best became an obsession that lead to nowhere. Until one day, I woke up and discovered it was not about the win at all. The turning point from Nowhere to Now Here. It was about the people and the amazing experience of accomplishing something great as a team. It was about the leaders who were developed and the people they got to impact. It was about the climb and the journey to the top, not the destination. Every moment and every lesson learned along the way was a gift. The real opportunity was in winning the game called “life” and making a difference. It wasn’t reflected in the scoreboard, in an award, an endorsement, or a Hall of Fame ceremony, yet it was part of the journey. The game had transformed into making a difference with people and making an impact in the world. Leaders on the softball field could become leaders of major corporations and countries. Teams and teamwork could set records, win championships and produce extraordinary results both on the field and in the boardroom and battlefield. That was a game worth playing, and it was available to everyone if they knew the secret. I had to reach the top to hit bottom and discover the secret, the game-changer. This story is about the climb, the summit, the view from the top, and the real prize.
