It was a “decision that sent shockwaves through the industry on the day of Major League Baseball’s self-imposed deadline to finalize a new collective bargaining agreement and preserve the start of the regular season.”  Derek Jeter (#10 BCAR), the CEO of the Marlins since 2017, called it quits recently with the Florida team, saying in a statement, “The vision for the future of the franchise is different than the one I signed up to lead. Now is the right time for me to step aside as a new season begins.”

In four full seasons, Jeter and the Marlins went a combined dismal 218-327.  It’s interesting to note that before Jeter took the job, he admitted “to being innately impatient while overseeing a franchise with shallower pockets and shorter contention windows.”  The Marlins’ payroll has been among the bottom four in baseball, which likely didn’t vibe well with Jeter, a man used to big money and big success.  Remember, too, that Jeter is not innately wired to be a shrewd “wheeler and dealer”.  The #10, as a dominant Back brain Animate (as well as a secondary Front brain Conceptual), is gifted in the world of imagination, reflection, relationships, music, creativity, etc., not ideal traits for leading a large company requiring fast-action decision-making.  Instead, take Alex Rodriquez, a #5 FEIR who recently co-purchased the Minnesota Timberwolves with Wal-Mart’s Marc Lore for $1.5 billion.  A-Rod over the years has proven himself to be innately gifted in the business-world, as has golf’s Greg Norman (#5), or even football’s Peyton Manning (#5), who holds deals with over half a dozen big name brands.

It’s always good for Q2s to hire “back up” when it comes to business … men and women who are strongest in the Q1 or Q3 regions to help bolster them forward to success.
