LAS VEGAS—Business owners who want to succeed need to have a flexible attitude and know how to assemble a winning sales team, former Cincinnati Reds catcher Johnny Bench told attendees of the Tire Industry Hall of Fame Breakfast Nov. 2. A member of major league baseball's Hall of Fame, Mr. Bench delivered the keynote address prior to TANA's induction of three members into its Hall of Fame.
He emphasized that adjusting to a changing business climate is as important as a catcher adjusting to different pitches. Mr. Bench also noted that success begins with an individual.
"If you can be a leader and focus on excellence, then you're going to be good," he said.
