Welcome to Episode 252 of Building My Legacy.

Mark Oristano has led a life sports fans dream about, spending 30 years in the NFL broadcasting football games and, much of that time, working in the Dallas Cowboys front office. Mark worked under legendary Cowboys president and general manager Tex Schramm who created a front office system that was the envy of the pro sports world. In this podcast, he talks with us about why the original Cowboys franchise was so successful on and off the field and why Schramm’s management style is still a model for today.

So if you want to know:
  • Tex Schramm’s three rules for staffing — simple rules that still work today
  • Why, if you don’t have loyalty — on both sides — you won’t build passion
  • How we can begin to build workplaces that people actually want to be in again
  • Why the pizza delivery person is more important to the customer than the pizza company’s CEO
  • The top three things employees want (HINT: More money is only #3)
  • Why companies shouldn’t be focused on increasing shareholder value — and where their focus should be
