I Was Better in the C-Suite Thanks to LGBTQ Flag Football

I Was Better in the C-Suite Thanks to LGBTQ Flag Football. In some really interesting ways, the lessons I learned in that very busy volunteer role turned out quite handy in my career a few years later when I accepted a C-level job.

I’m lucky to have picked up some useful knowledge in my career about effective leadership and the development of executives and boards of directors. Much of what I learned came from a couple decades of work as a consultant in which I helped literally hundreds of executive leaders and boards when their companies or organizations wanted to accomplish something ambitious. Or get themselves out of hot water.

And some of what I learned along the way came from less conventional places. That includes a particular two-year period in which I was the elected commissioner (in other words, president) of the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL). In some really interesting ways, the lessons I learned in that very busy volunteer role turned out quite handy in my career a few years later when I accepted a C-level job. This is how.

My motivation to share

It would never have occurred to me to share this story were it not for my buddy Andy McCallin, who a few years ago was under consideration to be appointed by a governor to a district-court judge vacancy.

At the time Andy was a state assistant attorney general, so he had some fancy friends. He collected letters of recommendation from people like a former U.S. Senator and former Cabinet Secretary.

And me. He wanted a letter from me explaining how his experience as a leader in our local LGBTQ flag football league had prepared him to be a judge. He was required to supply perspectives from not only other legal experts but from his community.

In online sports betting, the odds depict the ratio between the amounts staked by parties into a bet or wager. For example � the odds of 2 to 1 means the bookmaker stakes two times of the amount staked by the bettor.
