3 ways to take advantage of your team members’ strengths

first_imgThe highest quality machines usually have the strongest parts. If you want your team to be the strongest, you’ll want to make sure you’re maximizing the strengths of your employees. Here are three ways to do just that…Do your research: If you want to maximize the potential of your employees’ strengths, you have to know exactly what they are. Through conversing with your team and observing them in their current roles, you should be able to get a better idea of where their strengths and weakness lie.Shuffle the deck: You won’t always find that employees are in the ideal role for their skillset. If you find an employee is struggling in their current position, it may be time to look and see if there’s a better fit in the company. Furniture can be a pain to put together, but when the assembly is done and every part is in the right place, it’s a satisfying result.Water your plants: Just like plants need water and sunlight to grow, your employees can’t grow if they’re not given what they need. Sometimes employees need training to further their skills in certain areas. Find opportunities to help employees grow in ways that will help your staff and the company. 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

USC prepares for conference tournament

first_imgDespite losing three of its last six regular-season games, the USC women’s basketball team enters the Pac-10 tournament with a strong chance of earning a postseason bid.All-around player · Junior guard Briana Gilbreath is a consistent offensive and defensive force for USC. This week, she was named to the All-Pac-10 team for the second straight season and Pac-10 All-Defensive Team for the third straight time. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan First up for the Women of Troy (18-11, 10-8) is a game against Washington State, a team they beat twice during the regular season.Last week, USC overcame a second-half deficit to take down the Cougars (8-22, 6-12) at the Galen Center.“Washington State is a hot team,” said USC coach Michael Cooper. “They have some guards who can shoot the ball. One thing we have on our side is that the game is being played at the Galen Center.”Cooper says his team is peaking at the right time. In their final regular season game, the Women of Troy blew a double-digit halftime lead against Washington, but rallied to win in overtime.“Two weeks ago we might have lost that game,” Cooper said. “We’re excited because we ended [the season] on a positive note. We hold our destiny in our hands and have a chance to get into the tournament.”All season long, the Women of Troy have pointed to 20 wins as the benchmark for earning a postseason berth.Last season, USC won 19 games and was denied a tournament bid.Reaching that number will be made more difficult by the absence of junior guard and all-conference performer Ashley Corral, who will serve the second game of her suspension tonight against the Cougars. Corral was suspended before the Washington game for violating team rules.In her place, USC will rely on redshirt senior guard Jacki Gemelos and freshman guard Len’Nique Brown. Gemelos, who started handling the ball more as the season progressed, gives the Women of Troy a versatile threat at point guard.“[Gemelos has] done a great job handling the point position,” Cooper said. “We’re going to need her leadership and perimeter shooting.”Brown, who has played well in limited duty, will be called on to relieve Gemelos at the point.“Len’Nique just has to play good, steady basketball,” he said. “[We] don’t need her to score 20 points, we just need her to play good defense and get us into our plays.”If the Women of Troy beat Washington State, they will play the winner of the Arizona-Oregon game. USC split the season series with the Wildcats and swept the Ducks.Tip-off is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Thursday.Looming after that game is a semifinal clash with  No. 2 Stanford. USC hung tough with the Cardinal last month at the Galen Center and is looking for a repeat performance.“We know what we need to do,” Gemelos said. “We need two wins in the Pac-10 tournament, and then against Stanford we need to compete and beat them as well.”Tip-off is at 5 p.m. tonight at the Galen Center.last_img read more

Stephen Curry told Under Armour to ditch All-Star party plans, donate money instead

first_imgCurry spent Friday with his family for the reopening ceremony instead of hosting an All-Star party Friday night. “It’s easy to throw a party and have fun,” said Dell Curry, Stephen’s father. “But to put the dollars back in the community, and have something that will last long after the All-Star Game is over – that party is just a one-night thing.”To put funds into something that you can go back to, touch, feel and see the difference that it’s making, not only in the community, but in the lives of young people and adults alike, it speaks volumes to who they are and what kind of person they are. Also, how much they love this community and loved growing up here and want to leave a mark after the All-Star Game leaves.” “Stephen’s overall focus as we look at 2019 and beyond is how can he leave something behind that’s meaningful and useful,” said Kris Stone, Under Armour’s director of basketball sports marketing. “That’s been his main point and challenge to us. Whether it’s in the Bay Area, Charlotte or even in Asia, that’s his goal.”Curry intentionally picked the Carole Hoefener Center to donate the money toward; that’s where he and his younger brother, Seth, spent much of their childhood while living in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Related News With NBA All-Star weekend comes extravagant parties and events with players and sponsors, but Warriors star Stephen Curry didn’t want any part of that. Instead, he had a better idea.When Curry and Under Armour were planning their NBA All-Star weekend activities “some 18 months away,” the six-time All-Star made it clear he didn’t want to spend the money on an expensive party or to promote his shoes. He told Under Armour to ditch those plans and spend the budget they would have spent on a party to transform and renovate Curry’s old rec center, according to ESPN.

Additionally, the league’s players association will donate $150,000 over the next three years toward the project.”We picked the Carole Hoefener Center for a specific reason,” Stephen Curry said. “Their priorities are very similar to our family’s, in terms of giving people equal opportunities in education, access to knowledge about nutrition and wellness and having a safe and inspiring place to play.” Warriors’ Stephen Curry jumps into student section to celebrate Davidson’s winlast_img read more
