Best of Scott O'Neil

Best of the WIS Podcast: Scott O’Neil

By iHire | December 15, 2021

2021 is ending, and it’s been a fun year for the WorkInSports Podcast. So as we gear up for more sports career advice to spring into action for 2022, we’re revisiting some of the most impactful of our 41 guests from the past 12 months for inspiration wherever you are on your career path.

Our first lookback involves Scott O’Neil, the CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports and Entertainment at the time of our interview. When we spoke, he had just published his first book, Be Where Your Feet Are.

This interview inspired VP of Content and Engaged Learning Brian Clapp – and based on audience feedback, it did the same for you. In addition to going through O’Neil’s journey to running a company that owns the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils, the podcast covered:

  • The importance of maintaining a work-life balance.
  • Notable leadership advice from Be Where Your Feet Are.
  • The value of being present as your authentic self in all that you do.
  • Essential traits of O’Neil’s best hires.

Clapp went into this interview assuming that, due to O’Neil’s position, he would get canned answers that weren’t authentic and wouldn’t be interested in the interview. However, the conversation with O’Neil gave Clapp a reason not to make assumptions.
