I was waiting for a friend near the locker-room door after a home game. Coach Meyer had taken just one player out of the locker-room, away from the pack. He said to him, “You have two choices: You can play like a team member or you can go home. We don’t need any hot-shots here; all we need are team-players.” If you think about it, that’s why so many of his teams looked a little bit alike, even though the individual players changed over the years. They had learned his way of playing–unselfishly. Would that our workplace teams could emulate his coaching philosophy on team and humility.
