Randy Boyd’s “THE GAME” values applicable to all successful enterprises

Knoxville AwardRandy Boyd, the Founder of Radio Systems Corporation and current Tennessee Commissioner of Economic and Community Development, was presented the 21st “Knoxville Award” yesterday. In a tribute before the formal presentation, Doug Kirchhofer, Chief Executive Officer of the Tennessee Smokies baseball team that Boyd owns, cited the values that Boyd expects of the team and its players and employees. We thought they applied to any enterprise that wants to succeed since, as the slogan says, you have to be in “THE GAME.” There’s one word tied to each letter. You can apply your own expanded description to each of the seven attributes.

T – Try.

H – Honesty.

E – Environment.

– Gratitude.

A – Attitude.

M – Motivation.

E – Excellence.
