Interview: Jerry Rollins

November 14, 2020 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off on Interview: Jerry Rollins
Jerry Rollins played with some great players in the World Hockey Association.
Jerry Rollins (6) sure knew how to handle himself when things got tough.

RotoRob recently sat down and chatted with former WHA tough guy Jerry Rollins. The son of 1950s star NHL goalie Al Rollins, Jerry recently authored Enforcer to Entrepreneur, a new book outlining the lessons he’s learned about leadership and what it takes to make corporations run successfully.

Jerry really has a fascinating tale to tell, going from high school dropout to the man who started the classic ’70s brawl in the video below, to a powerhouse CEO that is sought by top executives to help them lead their businesses. His easy to digest book is filled with entertaining anecdotes and is truly aspirational. It should be required reading for anyone in a leadership position or those who desire to achieve that level.

Among the topics we covered with Rollins include:

  • How having to improve his skill level as he moved up the ladder in hockey helped prepare him for the improvements required to rise in the corporate world;
  • How measuring — and keeping score — is a vital component of personal development;
  • Who he would take first overall in a Fantasy hockey dynasty league draft;
  • Who was the best teammate he ever had; and
  • Whether any current NHL defensemen remind him of himself;

We had a very engaging conversation, and you can listen to it in its entirety below.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

In addition to his fine signing/songwriting skills, Cat Stevens was a gifted instrumentalist, playing the guitar, bass, mandolin, piano and Mellotron. In 1975, he released the compilation album, Greatest Hits, which included a new track, “Two Fine People,” previously only available as a single also released in 1975. Here is it with Spanish subtitles, so you can sing along in a different language. Yes, we’re here for you…

Book Review: Insight Pitch: My Life as a Major League Closer

February 12, 2019 | by JB Branson | Comments Comments Off on Book Review: Insight Pitch: My Life as a Major League Closer
Have you ever been at a baseball stadium or at home watching a game and get the strongest urge to be gripping an old, worn-out baseball? True baseball fans know exactly what we are talking about. You want to feel the laces under your index and middle fingers. You want to smell the dirty leather. We’ll be completely honest with you; we made it through the first chapter of this book, closed it, set it down, and headed straight for the garage. We needed to grip a baseball.

Book Review: Born Fanatic – My Life in the Grip of the NFL

February 9, 2018 | by Vaney Hariri | Comments Comments Off on Book Review: Born Fanatic – My Life in the Grip of the NFL
It is rare for the average fan to ever gain insight into the life and times of a Hall of Famer and it may be as rare to gain those insights from one of their children. What type of men sacrifice time and engagement with their families to play a game that requires strategies with the complexities of war yet a willingness to partake in violence with the simplicity of a car crash?

Book Review: The Anatomy of Competition in Sports

March 26, 2016 | by Vaney Hariri | Comments Comments Off on Book Review: The Anatomy of Competition in Sports
The dynamics of competition are vast, perhaps limitless, and are relevant to virtually any endeavour. What this book points to as the primary difference between sports and, say, being an accountant, is how much and perhaps more importantly how long the professional athlete must invest into their respective sport. We know many people in many professions that are extremely competitive, but we have yet to meet a doctor or a lawyer that started training for their profession when they were six.

Book Review: Performing Under Pressure

July 14, 2015 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off on Book Review: Performing Under Pressure
Stress is triggered by the needs and demands of everyday life. It’s the reminder to pay the bills, buy the groceries and get the kids to soccer practice on time. Pressure is what we experience in life’s do-or-die moments — landing a plane without landing gear, making a risky business decision that could affect hundreds or thousands of employees, needing an “A” on a final exam to pass a class or needing a goal with your team trailing 3-2 with just 15 seconds to play in Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final. Stress is an inconvenience. Pressure is a need to survive. Both serve a valuable motivating purpose.
