A follow up to “The True Meaning Of Champion”, Ray Evernham.
One of the greatest crew chiefs and most successful car owners in the history of NASCAR history. That is how the first line in his resume reads. The accomplishments are broken down to specifics such as three time NASCAR Cup Champion, 51 wins in 216 races, voted “Greatest Crew Chief of All-Time.
If success leaves a trail, I’m following this guy.
He was speaking about and shared 12 good definitions, here is number three:
CHAMPIONS inspire their teammates to play harder, more intensely, by their example and through their actions. They walk their talk.
Is this integrity and rolling your sleeves up?
How important is it our leaders do what they say, when they said it would be done, even if they have to get their hands dirty.
Have you ever had an operator tell you that you have a call waiting, you know it is a difficult call. You tell the operator to tell the customer you are in a meeting, or tied up when you could take the call.
How does this kind of an action reflect who you are to your staff. The truth was you were trying to buy some time to correct an issue for the customer. You were trying to do a good thing.
You also ask the operator to lie, how do they feel?
Make sure you take care of your team.
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today.
