Episode Summary: Mike Henry and Steve Beltran
If you read LET THEM LEAD: Unexpected Lessons in Leadership from America’s Worst High School Hockey Team, you know two of the stars of the book are my first captain, Mike Henry, and one of our best goalies, Steve Beltran. Today Henry is the General Manager of USA Hockey Arena and Director of Compuware Hockey in Plymouth, and Beltran is a stand-out eighth-grade social studies teacher at Arthurs Middle School in Trenton. Here they describe their experience on the team, and the lessons they’ve taken with them, including: Keep it simple; focus on behaviors, not results. Henry tells his people, “Work hard, support your teammates, and have fun when you’re done.” Beltran tells his students “Respect yourself, and respect others.” Needless to say, I’m extremely proud of these two, and you can hear it in our conversation.
