Picking out the right football equipment

Picking Out the Right Football Equipment

Football as we all know is a favorite past time of many players out there. They enjoy the thrill of the game and they find it fun to compete with other leagues. Whether you are the player or the coach, there a lot of gears that you may want to buy for you to improve your game and make it look more official. Football equipment is an essential aspect in the life of a football player. With this, it is very vital that you choose the football equipment that would best suit your standing in the game.

In choosing the right gear, there are some steps that you need to follow in order for you to have the perfect fit that would protect you and make you feel comfortable throughout the game. The first thing to consider is the helmet. You have to pick a helmet that is just big enough to fit you comfortably yet a little enough for it to stay put and won’t fall. There are some helmets that have inflatable interior pads made to accommodate different sizes of head. The next step is choosing the right face mask. You’ll know if the face mask is right if it suits your position well. Face masks with several bars are highly recommended for line players to provide maximum protection. The wide receivers, running backs, quarterbacks and kickers should only use face mask with fewer bars for maximum visibility.

Choose jaw pads and chin strap that would fit the size of the helmet. You can also purchase a rubber mouth protector to protect your dentals from breaking at the course of a strenuous game. In purchasing a shoulder pad, you can ask your coach or other sporting expert which shoulder pad types are right for your position. When it comes to selecting hip pads, thigh and knee pads and tailbone pads, you must always choose those that fits perfectly, perfect means big enough for comfort yet tight enough for protection. It also recommended that you buy an athletic supporter for your medical protection. Football protective gears comes in different prices, however, it is important to check the quality of the gear. Do not just go for cheap ones that are of poor quality. If in case you do not have enough money, it is best that you buy gears with great discounts.

Bear in mind that in playing football there is always a big room for injuries to occur. Choosing the right and the best football equipment that fits properly with the position you stand for can help prevent or decrease the frequency and severity of the injuries. When you evaluate your self as the best player of the team, most probably you are the one who is always on the field, thus you take long and hard hits. Make sure that before you go out on the field, you are equipped with the right protection that allows you to perform your best.

Plenty for everybody – project team success depends on it

Plenty for Everybody – Project Team Success Depends on it

Project team success depends on a number of variables, but the one that shows up as most important involves the willingness of team members to collaborate. And collaboration requires a belief that there is plenty for everybody. And it’s tough to spot as the reason a highly qualified, highly resourced, experienced, interdisciplinary team just did not click.

A story to illustrate, followed by eight recommendations for project team selection and success.

A client asked me to work with a team that just didn’t meet expectations. A critical project, lots of resources, clearly defined roles, clearly stated objectives, experienced people that could see the problem from many sides, more than enough time and money resources and top management visibility; this team had it all. And yet, output just didn’t meet what was expected – the team members agreed expectations were high, but achievable.

So what was the problem? In many of these kinds of situations there are any number of factors that can lead to poor performance. But lack of collaboration and sharing is always at or near the top. In this case, it was the single over-arching reason for the lack of performance. In this team of six high achievers were two that had been highly successful as individual contributors, but had little experience – or interest – in working in a collaborative setting. Their input was critical to the team, but they were reluctant to provide much, unless they received credit and recognition for their individual contributions. The other four members of the team were used to sharing, had been successful at it, and assumed all team members shared that value. Wrong. These two highly successful individual contributors saw the others as competitors – competitors for credit, recognition, rewards.

They really didn’t believe there was enough for everybody. And because of that belief, there wasn’t. Every member of the team ended up keeping their cards and self interest close to their vests, and little information and sharing occurred. Little leverage.

It only takes one or two negatively competitive types on any team to really screw it up. That had happened with this team.

I’d like to report that the two “not enough for everybody’s” were turned around.. They weren’t. They were released from the team and replaced by two people with the ability to collaborate and share – and the team ended up meeting expectations.

The belief that there is plenty for everybody is the cornerstone to collaboration and sharing. With the belief that there is plenty for everybody, there will be! Without it, there never can be enough. It’s the difference between a glass half full or half empty. It’s the difference between optimism and pessimism. It’s the difference between sharing and hoarding.

So what to look for in project team members to ensure that collaboration and open communication will occur?

1 – It goes without saying that experience, education, industry experience, technical skills, are all critical – I don’t care how collaborative and sharing someone may be – or how much they may believe there is plenty for everybody – if they aren’t perceived as bringing “chops’ to the table, they can’t contribute, and the seeds of discontent may be sowed among the other members.

2 – Look for people who are successful and collaborative not only in their work, but outside their work as well. Collaboration skills can be learned, but instinctive collaboration and sharing provide a huge head start. There is no better way to build collaboration skills than to work on volunteer committees, boards, church groups, non profit organizations.

3 – Remember there is no “I” in “We.” Look for how accomplishments sre described. Does the person refer only to themself, or are they generous in their recognition of the contributions of others.

4 – In describing accomplishments, spend time getting to the need for sharing and collaboration in their accomplishment. Are they aware of the contribution of others. Do they seek out individual contributor roles or roles requiring group skills and abilities?

5 – Get an example of when they were a good follower – what does that mean to them? How did they perceive their own performance in supporting roles to others? Have they demonstrated the willingness and ability to follow someone else, and be supportive?

6 – Look for people who participate in collaborative and team sports or activities – where the group is dependent upon each othet for success. This does not mean golfers and tennis players and skiers don’t make good collaborative teammates, but basketball, football, baseball and softball team membership provide more chances for supportive and sharing behavior.

7 – Look for “givers” – people who contribute without calculation of immediate reward. An example of this quality is the mentor who gives to others without expecting promotion, publicity or a raise in pay.

8 – And once the selections for the team are made, institute a group recognition and reward structure – give the team credit and recognition. Picking out team members for special recognition is OK if something unique happens, but too much of that behavior can breed competition in the team – and that kind of competition reduces sharing and collaboration.

Look at your own beliefs and the beliefs of your organizations. If you see “me” behaviors – and you will, work to establish the belief that there is plenty for everybody.

President obama and men’s watches: his quirky style

President Obama and Men’s Watches: His Quirky Style

President Obama is the man. He’s always on point and entertaining to watch and listen to whether he’s giving a press conference or appearing on a popular talk show like he did last night on the “Late Show” with Dave Letterman.

Although Obama has been on the “Late Show” five times before, this was his first appearance since becoming President, therefore everyone was tuned in to see what he would say and do. Of course he was cool and personable and I’m sure Letterman received some good ratings.

The public doesn’t just like to see and hear what Obama says and does; they also want to talk about and analyze what he wears. When it comes to what the President wears during his normal work day and frequent media appearances, it’s pretty much a standard outfit: dark suit, white shirt, blue tie and American flag pin on his lapel. The one way for him to make a fashion statement and express himself is by wearing a watch. President Obama is known to have a couple different men’s watches: a Rolex, a TAG Heuer and a Jorg Gray.

Each of these men’s watches makes a different statement: a Rolex is a Rolex, one of the most expensive brands of luxury watches ever, and the one which he was seen wearing when he was running for President. Ironically, or not, his then “competition” John McCain also wore a Rolex.

When still a Senator, Obama religiously wore a TAG Heuer Series 1500 Divers watch. This was his daily watch for about ten years and one which he still wears. TAG Heuer produces many sporty men’s watches that are not out of reach for the average American to own.

The Jorg Gray watch that Obama has also shown much loyalty to has received the most attention because before he wore it, no one had heard of it. Given to him as a gift him by one of the Secret Service agents protecting him when he was still a Senator, this is an inexpensive men’s watch that costs about $200 – $250.

Last night on the “Late Show” one could see that he was wearing a large sized watch but which one was it? People are tweeting that it was an Omega watch, or maybe a Rolex? My guess is that it was not a Rolex, as most men’s watches by Rolex seem to have a metal bracelet and the one he wore has a dark leather strap. Unless the President has recently gone out and bought an Omega watch, likelihood is, that it was either his trusty TAG or his often worn Jorg Gray.

With all this talk about what kind of men’s watch the President wears, what no one seems to be talking about is which hand he wears it on? Most people are right-handed so it’s common to see watches worn on left-hands, but as you may have noticed, Obama is left-handed, which would normally mean that he wears his watch on his right hand, but he doesn’t… he wears his watch on his left hand. A total quirk and something else that he will go down for aside from being one of the best Presidents this country as ever seen.
