My two older boys, ages 9 and 10, are playing ‘kid pitch’ baseball this year. Believe it or not, when I asked them what position they wanted to play, they both said “Dad, I want to be the pitcher”.
Then we asked each player on the team what position they wanted to play and each and every player said “Pitcher”. On paper this is not strange, as this is the most glorified position in baseball. After all, they make the most money, get the most publicity (when they are good), and seem to have the biggest fan base.
The other coaches and I talked to our 13-man roster about how important every position is on the team and how every position contributes to the overall goal. We teach them that they all have to play together to win.
Recently, four women from Group Management Services attended the Women Who Excel Seminar in Cleveland, OH. It was a great networking opportunity as well as a forum to hear leading women talk about how they have made it to the top. There were panelists from all different industries that discussed topics ranging from the barriers women face in the workforce to the right way to align yourself as a strategic partner.
Jessica Mischka (Benefits Administration Manger), Catisha Jackson (Benefits Account Manager), Sanja Benic (Human Resources Intern), and Stacey Edelman (VP of Client Services) enjoyed learning how to become a stronger female presence and mentor at GMS.
Group Management Services is very proud of not only these four women, but proud of all the females that help lead our company and its customers.
We’ve all been affected by cancer.
Each year, 12.7 million people will learn they have cancer. Cancer impacts all of our lives; our friends’ lives, our families’ lives.
What if there was something you could personally do to help?
Help Prevent Cancer
The American Cancer Society is seeking participants for a study called the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). The CPS-3 study is looking to enroll adults between 30 and 65 years old who have never been diagnosed with cancer. The study won’t take up too much of your time, but will make a huge difference in cancer research.
Together we can stop cancer.
I am a member of the board of the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the American Cancer Society.
