C-10 Podcast: Be The One, Ep. 91

  This is episode 91 of the C-10 Podcast. The only reason we tell you that is because this will be unlike any of the previous 90 episodes in terms of content and length. Our first 90 episodes — and our future episodes — are interviews with leaders and/or people who have been influenced by great leaders. For the past seven or eight days, something has been on the mind of host Matt Fulks, so … Read more

C-10 Podcast: CTC Webinar, Ep. 69

  As we mention from time to time, this week’s episode is a little different. But just as powerful as the others. And this is one week you may want to share with others. In fact, a college president was listening when we recorded this, and asked for the link to this podcast episode so he could share it with his team.  Here’s why: this week you’ll hear most of the webinar we did with … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Mike Sweeney, Ep. 59

  As you may know, the C-10 name of this podcast comes from the name of our leadership and mentoring program for high school students: C-10 Mentoring & Leadership. And that comes from the “C” part of “C” You In The Major Leagues. In short, at the backbone of what we do are 10 leadership traits that start with the letter “C”: Care, Character, Coach, Commitment, Comprehension, Composure, Concentration, Competitor, Confidence and Courage. When Royals … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dayton Moore, Ep. 58

  With the end of the school year a few weeks ago — meaning nine of our C-10 students graduated — and being in the middle of the Major League Baseball season, we felt this would be a good time to get “C” You In The Major Leagues’ founder and Royals General Manager Dayton Moore with us. Last week, we recorded this conversation while standing in the middle of a large baseball and softball field … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dubill, Myers and Moore, Ep. 29

  As you may remember or have have seen — or you might’ve been on the original call — in October we ended the month-long Crown Town Challenge campaign with a celebration webinar on leadership featuring Christa Dubill, the Chief Communications Officer for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, Retired General Richard Myers, who is a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and current President of Kansas State University, and “C” … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Richard Myers, Ep. 15

  This is a special episode. And a fascinating one as we talk with retired 4-star General and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a Kansas City native and the current president of Kansas State University, Richard Myers. It’s particularly fascinating when hearing General Myers talks about leadership as someone who sat in the Oval Office countless times during a tumultuous time in our country’s history. Joining host Matt Fulks this week is … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dayton Moore

There’s no better way to start this podcast series than with “C” You In The Major Leagues Founder and Royals General Manager Dayton Moore. In our maiden voyage, Dayton and Matt Fulks sit down outside to discuss Dayton’s vision for the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program, his leadership philosophy, the importance of mentoring…and Dayton takes on the “7 … Read more

COMPETITOR: Dayton on Competing

This month’s “C” word is COMPETITOR, which, in the “C” You In The Major Leagues’ lingo, means someone that has the desire and ability to compete; high expectations; is tough-minded; and brings the best out of teammates. During his regular Friday morning chat with Bob Fescoe on 610 Sports Radio, our Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore took the definition a step further. Competing — the desire to compete — is perhaps the most important … Read more

CHARACTER: Dayton Moore on what it means

This month’s “C” word has been CHARACTER. In the CYITML lexicon, traits of CHARACTER: Applies moral principles; Learns from mistakes; Accepts responsibility; and Respects individuals. Periodically throughout the year, we’ll get more in-depth with CYITML Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore about that month’s word. Since CHARACTER is such a big part of how we approach our work with the foundation, and the way each of us should approach life, it seems to be a … Read more

SUPPORTER SPOTLIGHT: Dr. Elbie Loeb

  Name: Dr. Elbie Loeb Occupation: Retired Physician   You’ve been a “C” You In The Major Leagues supporter since 2015, when the foundation was still relatively young. What made you want to get involved? Dr. Elbie Loeb: I previously volunteered for Operation Breakthrough, working with inner city preschool children — I think that this organization is a continuation in helping to lift the children from poverty. I know it helps their self-esteem in building … Read more

SUPPORTER SPOTLIGHT: Mike Trigg

Name: Mike Trigg Occupation: Investment Management Mike, your introduction to “C” You In The Major Leagues was similar to a lot of people. Yet different. You invited Dayton to speak to your company, WCM Investment Management, which is how many people first hear about the foundation. But you’re not based here in Kansas City; you’re in California. What made you want to bring Dayton to Laguna Beach to speak with your group, which, coincidentally, was … Read more

Supporter Spotlight: 2017 Impact

At least once a month during 2018 — generally on the first Friday of each month — we’re going to have a “Supporter Spotlight” for one of our weekly blog posts. A supporter is anyone who’s well, supporting people in need in Kansas City through “C” You In The Major Leagues. One month it may be a written Q&A with a volunteer. The next month it could be a video interview with a donor. We’re … Read more

2017 was a year of TEAM

Usually TEAM is preached by countless coaches across the country, but away from sports, perhaps nowhere is that acronym more evident … Read more

Wiffle Ball at the Hollow a perfect success … almost

It’s safe to say our inaugural “Wiffle Ball at the Hollow” was a great success. People had fun in spite of the heat. There was free ice cream and coffee. And we exceeded our announced fundraising goal (more on that in the coming days). Perfect, right? Well, almost. During the lunch part, after our Founder and Executive Director Dayton Moore finished the Q&A, I got back up to thank our sponsors and announce the results … Read more

“C” You At The “K” was a great success

The young man sheepishly walked up to me on his way to the buffet. He almost whispered when he asked, “Mr. Fulks, are we able to go through the line only one time or can I eat a little more food?” “Yes, please, go through as many times as you like! We want you guys to eat until the food is gone.” That may seem like a very basic conversation to many, but it’s one … Read more

Summitt embodied “C” leadership

  The coach looked at his star player during the timeout, knowing that, if she could steal the ball, it would help cut the opponent’s five-point lead in the last couple of minutes. He still had four timeouts. “OK, you’re on defense,” the coach roared out to his star. The horn sounded, and the do-it-all player went back on the court on defense. As had been mapped out, she stole the ball from the bigger … Read more
