Weigel says there’s a clear pattern in which people in sports tend to be less toxic than they are competitive sports.
He says we’ve seen the same trend in the tech world.
We’re seeing this in tech where the technology companies have started to embrace the social side of it, and they’re trying to embrace social media.
That’s the part of it where they’ve got the talent, but they’re also looking for the social element and the social engagement.
So I think we’re seeing a lot of the same kind of trend in sports competition.
And it’s not just the teams.
I think it’s a lot more people in the media and the corporate world.
There’s a general lack of understanding of how toxic is this stuff, because a lot people in that area are either in a bubble, or they don’t care, or have an insular culture that doesn’t care.
Weigel: They’re in a sort of a self-serving way of thinking, I don’t need to get as toxic as possible, and that’s kind of what people are looking for in sports.
And I think they have this general misconception that there’s no problem, but this is something that they need to really get to grips with and understand.
O’Briens: And I would say that’s why they’re so afraid of it.
And they need this toxic environment in their lives to be able to function, and so that’s where you have these athletes who are like, I’m not going to work in this company because I’m afraid of being toxic.
It’s like, oh, it’s just for the love of God, it can’t be that bad.
And so that kind of mindset.
And there’s also this notion that this is an industry, it doesn’t matter what the industry is, it matters what the people in it are, and the only way to make it more successful is to hire more people.
We need more people, and if we don’t have more people we’re not going do what we need to do.
O: But I do think the fact that you’re not actually paying people to work on your projects, I think that’s important.
And that’s a little bit of a myth, too, that you need to pay people to do the work.
But, I mean, I do agree that it’s important that people do the things they need do to be successful.
We don’t pay people in order to get them to do something.
We hire people to get us to do things.
So you know, I believe in people working hard for what they want, and not just working hard to get something done.
And in the case of sports, if you’re going to do a job and you’re actually making a living doing it, you’re doing something right.
And you know that’s the way it should be.
And if people are going to feel like they can’t have a normal life because they’re doing a job, then I think you’re creating a toxic environment, a toxic culture, that’s not good for the athletes.
We hope to have a conversation with more people this week.
O&G: We’ll be back next week.
