first_imgVince Caponi, CEO of St. Vincent Health in Indianapolis and former trustee of Saint Mary’s College, spoke to Saint Mary’s students in a self-described “true David Letterman fashion” talk called “The Top 10 Rules to Live By.” The College’s “Cross Currents” program sponsored this talk as part of its ongoing Collegiate Speaker Series. Using anecdotal framework from his experiences with his daughters, Caponi addressed students with advice on how to approach the business world after graduation. Introducing his “top 10,” He told students that they should consider three things as they go through college and enter the business world. “In order to be a good student, person, employee, there are three things we all want from our experiences: you want to be in on the things that affect you, you want recognition for a job well done, you want to know what you do makes a difference in people’s lives and have a very clear sight of what role you play,” Caponi said. He followed with his top 10 rules to live by. Caponi said his first two rules, humility and gratitude, were underrated traits of real leaders. Going into the business world, he said, someone would take a chance on you because you have no experience, and it is important to demonstrate your thanks for the opportunities you are given. His third rule was about ethics. “The ethical part is your handshake; it is your honor,” Caponi said. “It’s something only you have and you are the only one who can make that positive of negative.” The fourth rule was to have a sense of humor, which is important because you have to learn to laugh at yourself. Caponi said laughter can help relieve tensions in a lot of difficult situations. Caponi also said that everyone should have a “can-do, positive attitude.” He told students to remain positive, especially when first entering the career world. “There are people that walk around with a cloud over their heads, but that will get you nowhere,” Caponi said. “When you apply for jobs, there are going to be a lot of people who are going to tell you that you can’t do it, but you have to remember that you are a gift from God and that you have a unique talent.” Sixth on Caponi’s list was to love where you are. He said that if one does not receive their ideal position in the company, take advantage of the opportunity because situations tend to work out in the end. As a seventh rule, Caponi said he would advise everyone to try and learn something new everyday. Learning new things, especially details about people, can break down the walls that divide us and allow us to start building relationships. His advice was to learn from outlets that you don’t necessarily agree with. The eighth rule was to communicate often and clearly. Caponi stressed the importance of communication, both verbal and physical communication. “In terms of jobs, communication is very important,” Caponi said. “It’s really important that you do it clearly, understandably and often.” The ninth rule to live by, according to Caponi, was to remember that there are two sides to every story. Keeping this in mind, Caponi said, do not rush to judgment and give people the benefit of the doubt. He also said that it is important to explore, probe and to find out the truth in these situations. Caponi’s culminated his top 10 list with a rule that he said was probably the most important of the 10 — volunteer. He said location isn’t an excuse, because there is always an opportunity to spend time giving of yourself to others. “My advice to you is do what you do, and love what it is that you do,” Caponi said.last_img read more

first_imgFor Paul Flanagan, this weekend will be the first real opportunity to exercise his bench. For his starters, this could be an opportune time to grab some rest after racking up a lot of minutes through the first few weeks of a four-month season. Flanagan, the SU ice hockey head coach, and the Orange will play six of their next seven on the road. The upcoming two-game road trip to Union College turns the page on a season-opening homestand that featured four previously unseen programs, including nationally ranked Providence and Boston College. ‘I’m not looking at it like we’re just going to have our way,’ Flanagan said. ‘I think it’s going to be a very competitive game. But hopefully, we’ll be able to utilize our bench strength a little bit more. What we’re trying to do here, now that we’re in year three, we’re trying to develop some depth within our program.’ With 10 freshmen on this year’s Syracuse (2-2-1) team, Flanagan points to Friday and Saturday as some of the first real chances to put that bench to work. The upcoming series will provide an opportunity for some of the fresh faces, as well as the veterans, to get more involved in the offense. Flanagan doesn’t want his underclassmen to remain stagnant amidst the already heavy minutes being given to the starting unit in the first few games of the season. That means the freshmen could see quite a bit of time this weekend.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘A lot of times it just boils down to a lot of little things,’ Flanagan said. ‘So much of it isn’t so much what any of the seniors, or any of the captains, are going to say. I think it’s those freshmen who are watching, and just kind of visually, what they see.’ SU’s reserves showed they were paying attention in the second period on against Connecticut Saturday, when the Orange scored four goals en route to a 7-1 route of the Huskies. When the night was over, 12 different players recorded points, two freshmen (Sadie St. Germain and Margot Scharfe) scored their first career goals and a freshman goaltender (Jessica Drinkwater) shut down 18 shots from the opposition. If role players are able to have that effect again this coming weekend, SU will be in good shape. If not, then maybe Union College is taking greater strides than many initially anticipated. ‘They caught up and surprised a couple teams with some close games,’ senior forward Julie Rising said of the Bulldogs. ‘They’re a lot better than they were last year. So we have to make sure we play our game, and be prepared for what they bring to us.’ Although Syracuse came out on top in two meetings last year, winning 4-1 and 3-2, respectively, Union College is a team that won just five games and dropped their final 10 contests on the season. After beating Sacred Heart and hanging with Northeastern, a team the Orange tied 4-4 to start the season, Union College is looking to earn the respect of its division. Much like SU. However, now in its sixth season as a Division-I team, the Bulldogs’ transition from newly anointed program to actual divisional threat has come slow, unlike SU. The weekend series is the final set for the Bulldogs before they dive into their own conference schedule. ‘I haven’t actually ever seen them play but it sounds like they’re a pretty hard-working team,’ transfer Ashley Cockell said. ‘They can move the puck. We have to be ready to be able to play them this weekend and play hard, and hopefully get two Ws out of it.’ If everything goes right for coach Flanagan and his team, he will wake up Monday morning following hard-fought victories on the road, several of his 17 underclassmen will have seen time on the ice, and the week ahead will provide time took scout his next big opponent, in an Ohio State team that’s off to its best start in program history. But to Flanagan, this is not a weekend to be overlooked. ‘We had a very good series against them last year and we expect more of the same,’ Flanagan said. ‘I think they’re a team that’s getting better, each year. They’re developing more depth. I think they’re well coached. They’ll be good for us.’ zoirvin@syr.edu Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on October 20, 2010 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more
