“who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt, April 23, 1910
Student-Athletes represent a special group of people. I like to think they represent everything great about sport – competition, preparation, discipline, focus, teamwork, failure and achievement.
President Roosevelt’s comments above are often mimicked by present day leaders of business, government, and education as they discuss their own organizations, teams and employees and rightfully so. This connection is not a mere play on words nor does it occur through pure happenstance.
The experience a student athlete garners serves as a wonderful training ground for life and future leadership. Lessons are clearly learned in the classroom and they cannot be substituted. However, lessons are also learned on the field, in the locker room, on the bus traveling to games, in the gym training and unfortunately at times with the trainer rehabilitating injuries. It is the combination of these diverse experiences that provide the development and growth of an individual that has shown a proven track record for success.
Game Theory lives in the intersection of these developmental experiences and organizational growth opportunities. Individuals who learn to manage the multiple pressures of being a college athlete take easy to the multiple pressures associated with being a leader in the workforce. Our strategy enables our team to live out our sincere passion for helping our clients: athletic departments, employers and of course, student athletes achieve their potential more fully.
Thank you for visiting Game Theory Group.
My best always,
