That depends on who you are, what your position is, and whether the team needs that shot to win.

If you are coach or GM of the team you most likely don’t have to don’t need to be able to make that shot for the team to win.  But it sure would help if someone on the team, and probably most everyone on the team could make the lefty layup.  As coach or owner, you have to make sure they know how to take it, make it, and when to pull the trigger.

But if you are relying on yourself to make the shot, your team will probably lose.

So I ask you, if you are an owner, or CEO, or department head, or some sort of leader, why do you insist on taking all the lefty layups and never teach others to do it for you.

In a small company as owner or CEO you might be a player-coach, but you are still the coach.  You have to teach the lefty layup, or you’ll always have to take the shot when it’s needed.

How many lefty layups are you keeping to yourself instead of insisting others make it for you.
