The Hard Hat
21 Ways to Be a Great Teammate
From the moment I first heard about George Boiardi and the Hard Hat I was intrigued and captivated. I wanted to know more about him and his life.
I visited his coaches, attended several "21 Dinners" held in his honor, met his family, talked to his teammates, and personally observed how he inspired all who knew him.
I never intended to write a book about him but the more I learned, the more I felt compelled to share the kind of teammate he was and the impact he had.
We are all a teammate to somebody and George was the ultimate teammate; selfless, loyal, joyful, hard-working, competitive and compassionate. His influence on his teammates and team continues more powerful than ever 11 years later. Many of his teammates told me they still think about him every day and seek to model his giving spirit.
Whether you are a teammate at home, in the office or on the field I discovered 21 characteristics and habits that made George a great teammate and in this book I share his story and the powerful lessons we can learn from him.
My hope is that The Hard Hat will inspire you to be the best team member you can be and to build a great team.
