CEO Alan Mulally: “There are more important things than picking out a car.”“It’s too easy to get it in our heads that it’s all about us,” Mulally said Monday during Monday’s Executive Series session at the America’s Credit Union Conference and World Credit Union Conference in Denver. “But it’s not about us. It’s an honor to serve. The biggest change in mindset is moving from ‘I’ to ‘we.’”He said commitment is at the core of every successful business. “You have to commit to each other, with the idea that we’ll do whatever it takes to succeed. If your work environment isn’t safe, you won’t have high performance.”Consistency is another key to leadership success, Mulally said. “The most important thing as a leader is consistency of purpose—not changing the plan every week. Then everyone is in one place and knows what to do.” continue reading »

Pique Sous gave Willie Mullins his second victory in the last three renewals of the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot with a smart display under Ryan Moore. Press Association Ireland’s champion National Hunt trainer saddled Simenon to win the two-and-three-quarter-mile contest two years ago and Pique Sous, who nearly lost his life last October due to colic, was a heavily backed 11-4 chance to repeat the trick. They versatile grey was a little keen early on and Moore dropped him out towards the rear of the field, but he began to make headway heading down the back straight and was hot on the heels of the leaders rounding the home bend, where he appeared to be travelling much the best. He quashed stamina doubts as he posted a determined length-and-a-half victory. Another Irish challenger, the Aidan O’Brien-trained El Salvador, made considerable headway late in the day to finish second, with Brass Ring another neck away in third. The victory confirmed Moore’s place as leading jockey for the week with his sixth winner of the meeting and his third on the card. Moore said: “It was a very messy race, they only went steady. He travelled beautifully into the race and picked up well. It was a long way, the last furlong, but I got the gaps when they came. When you ride for Willie, it makes it a bit easier.” Mullins added: “Having a Royal Ascot winner is always fantastic. When Ryan hit the front I didn’t think anyone could catch him. “It’s great for the Supreme Horse Racing Club (owners). I picked this horse out for them as he had a lovely pedigree. It’s a been a dream for the racing club to be here and enjoying this. “He’s in the Northumberland Plate, so we’ll see how he comes out of that. I’m not sure what penalty he gets for winning this, but we will have a look at that. I’d like to dedicate the victory to one of my members of staff who had a brain haemorrhage and who is quite ill in hospital.” Tiger Cliff, who was sent off the 5-2 favourite, collapsed and died of a suspected heart attack.

D’Angelo Russell overcame a rocky start to his rookie season to finish fifth among first-year players in scoring and fourth in assists. He set a Lakers rookie record with 130 3-pointers.On Thursday, the second overall pick in last year’s draft was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie second team, an award voted on by the media.Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns and Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis were voted unanimously to the first team.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Russell finished seventh overall in voting, with 142 out of a possible 260 points, including 25 first-team votes.Lakers rookie forward Larry Nance Jr. earned three points, while 32-year-old rookie Marcelo Huertas earned one second team vote.Russell averaged 13.2 points and 3.3 assists in 80 games, including 48 starts. He often clashed with former coach Byron Scott, who moved him out of the starting lineup for two months in the middle of the season.The most notable moment of Russell’s rookie season, however, came off the court, when a video apparently recorded by the point guard in which teammate Nick Young seemed to discuss intimate relationships with women other than his fiancée, rapper Iggy Azalea, went viral.The incident caused a rift in the Lakers locker room, damaging Russell’s credibility with some teammates who felt Russell has violated a code of the locker room.
