Dear Team Player

Dear Team Player

You’ve been around for years on our team. One thing I heard you say repeatedly is that you’re a team player. As with anyone, you had your share of mistakes and failure under pressure but your resilience and integrity was never in question.

People can be mean, especially when the chips fall – and because of your position – you usually take “the hit” for the team. Still, however, you walk tall and trust in your integrity; so rare these days and encouraging to see.

I’ll admit, I’ve occasionally been a “finger pointer” when you’ve let me down. Sometimes when decisions are so ludicrous and faulty it’s hard to not criticize, constructively or not.

Well, to no real fault of your own, you are moving on. No one officially asked you to leave but you are wise and knew when it was time. And you requested to leave with such class, again maintaining your loyalty to the team and that you are a team player. “Whatever is best for the team is what the decision is ultimately about.”

Yes, you will definitely be missed. Your impact on our team was record-setting. You’ve helped us more than any other in your position in the past. It’s astonishing how quickly we turn and forget.
I wish you all the best in your next organization and that you’ll take them to new heights.

Roberto Luongo, you really are all-class.

Everyone makes mistakes. I hope that letting you go isn’t one of ours.

Dear Food Court Kid

It’s not too often that we see integrity or respect coming from a young generation. To guess your age, I would say young teenager. It was a simple thing that you did which spoke volumes about your consideration of and respect toward others.

You were eating lunch at the food court in the mall with what I assume to be your brother and father. After you meals, your brother left the table and your father got up to put on his jacket and you instinctively gathered up the lunch garbage and took it to the trash bin with the tray. It seemed natural for you to do that; not even being asked.

You wouldn’t have seen this, but the lady whose “job” it is to clear the tables was standing behind you, saw what you did and the look on her face was priceless; positive bewilderment. I’m pretty sure you made her day.

In a time when it’s hard to encourage people to not litter, you’re setting an example of something so much more – a lesson that not just “young” people need to adhere to.
