As a young executive in professional baseball, I often felt this way.
The deputies, she said, led the contingent off Love-A-Child property; Glover said the group left on its own. In a statement, he offered his own account of the Aug. “I also stated this was frightening the women and children of our shelter unnecessarily.” Glover said it was Knott who did the yelling.An incident after my first season as vice president/general manager of my first baseball team almost took me down even further.During my first season I came up with an idea to increase advertising revenue in our nightly game scorecard for the next season.I created a presentation for our organizational meetings in the fall where I could offer the concept to our principal owner and the four other general managers in our organization.Following my presentation, which I thought I did pretty well considering my extreme nervousness, our principal owner said, “Well, Skip, that’s a great idea, but, we don’t do it that way in Nashville (the home office and city that launched this group’s first baseball team).” That statement meant I wouldn’t be doing it in my city, either. I felt judged and demeaned in front of my bosses and peers.
