I remember back when our team had Zig Ziglar come in and talk with us about how much stronger our team will become through connection. We always had guest speakers come in the offseason or the night before a game. Zig went to heaven in 2012 but he left and enormous impact on all that he was around, us included. He told us stories, he made us laugh and cry. He brought us to another level of thought and team. He made us believe in ourselves and our team. One of the things that Zig said that will always ring true even to this day is, "If you first help people get what they want, they will help you get what you want." He added, "Sometimes we are so concerned with correcting others that we never connect with them." Sometimes, we as leaders have a pronoun problem, ME, MY, I instead of WE, US ,THEM. We forget that the TEAM comes first!
