Team athletes better employees?
Hey, just read an article saying that people who played on sports teams make better employees because they have learned life skills such as self-identity, decision making, goal settting, moral reasoning, and anger management.
As someone who did both a team sport (baseball) and an individual sport (wrestling), I just think it is participating in sports, rather than the team aspect, that makes an employee more focused and productive.
Actually, I've never asked anyone I was interviewing if they played sports or what sports they played, but I've heard that some interviewers do.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
