The post game handshake is the last opportunity our players get to acknowledge the other team’s players and coaching staff. It is vital that, during this handshake, players learn eye contact, respect, and sincere gratitude. Not only do Extreme teams thank the opposing team and their efforts, but also the umpires. These umpires value the post game handshake more than we may think. It can set you apart from other teams, make people remember you, show your respect and the kind of character you have as an individual. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, the handshake shows you’re a professional and in it for the right reasons. You are capable of taking defeat and showing respect just as you are of coming out on top and still having that respect. Let us show our Extreme Pride through this post game handshake to opponents and umpires alike.
As always, culture is a big component of a successful organization, business and life. You are who you surround yourself by and those people can drive you to make you better, happier and the best you possible. Or they can bring you down, hold you back and not allow you to grow. There are a few points of the Extreme culture that we take pride in. Stay tuned and continue to check on our blog for topics that our Network Trainers and Coaches think make the Extreme great!
