Mentoring Stories: A Mentor Helps Shape Yankees Manager

Posted on Mon, Nov, 02, 2009

Josh Paul, NY Yankees newest minor league manager, can attribute his success to some impressive mentors that have helped him become who is today.  One mentor that made an impact on Josh is Joe Maddon from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays’.  Josh said “Joe was the first guy I really learned game strategy from and he taught me how to treat players.”  He indicated that the approach was all about respect, discipline and making sure drama is kept to a minimum.  Josh’s approach with the team has been an asset to the Yankees.   Following a slow start to the season, they ended with a standing of 47-29.  It seems as though Josh Paul brought with him some valuable attributes to the Yankees.  To learn how you can set up a mentoring program to help your employees share valuable information among one another, please click here.
