TA GROUP HOLDINGS | We invest in leaders
Recently I had the pleasure of visiting with an impressive group of 40+ interns working in various areas of our business. They were meeting with me all together as part of their onboarding and integration process, so I won’t pretend they all signed on to hear what I had to say – but I was flattered that they appeared to have done their homework, knew who I was, and came prepared to ask very specific questions about my experience.
I’ve done these visits, virtually or in-person, many times. They are never the same and I leave each feeling that I received much more than I gave.
When I share lessons I’ve learned, I often talk about my years in the business world—from the boss who gave me a shot at UPS, to the company that erupted in (and recovered from) scandal, to my position now as an advisor to a portfolio of companies, including Launch Consulting. But all the building blocks that got me where I am today are stacked on top of the foundation laid by my first job out of high school: the Air Force.
Like many of you, I’ve peeked in on the baseball playoffs a time or two over the last couple of weeks. I love competition and admire those who have the discipline and courage to pursue excellence in a field as competitive as professional athletics. I’ll admit that whenever I watch a team celebrate, I think, “If only I would have applied myself, maybe I could have had an evening like that.”
