I would hate to be a professional athlete. I love sports, but the mindless interviews and constant microscopic analysis of every word I said and every move I made would drive me crazy. That was obvious this in this past week’s NFL draft. It was also a great lesson in learning to lead others.
West Virginia’s Geno Smith was arguably considered the best quarterback in the draft. Everyone expected Smith to go in the first round of picks. Athletes of this caliber are often invited to attend the Radio City Hall event, sitting in the green room. The green room is a place where guests wait before coming on stage, often filled with backstage cameras.
