On this day in leadership history in 1953, the wiffle ball was invented by David N. Mullany. The story goes that in the early 1950s, he was an out of work semi-pro baseball pitcher, so he set about to make a ball that kids could throw curveballs with. And then he started selling the balls at a local diner.
What’s the leadership lesson? Honorable leaders look for ways to re-invent a traditional idea to help others in life and business. Make it a goal to be others-focused on your daily work.
