The Power of Past Influences: A Heartfelt Conversation with John Hayes

The Quarterback DadCast

12-10-2023 • 1 hr 5 mins

Ever stopped to think about how your childhood influences have shaped your life? In this intriguing conversation with our guest, John Hayes, the President of Alta IT Services, (a part of Systems One), we explore the joy of family, gratitude, and the profound impact of our parents on our lives.  Unfortunately, John's father passed away on October 5th, and we are going to dedicate this episode to his father.    Rest in Peace, Mr. Jack Hayes.

Born in Jamaica Queens, John was a former baseball player and coach, who was vulnerable and shared life lessons he learned on the field and how they apply to his family life. His experience as a parent, his enduring marriage of over 30 years, and the joy of his daughter getting her driver's permit are just a few highlights of the story. We touch on how the pandemic has challenged caregiving, the importance of providing children with secured independence, and how childhood influences can shape a person's approach to life.

Sports played a huge role in John's life as he would travel on the subway my himself to meet his father for NY Knicks games.  He continues to be a huge fan of the NY Giants and shared many great memories cheering them on with his father.

John's love for cooking and his memorable experience at Bobby Flay's restaurant, made possible by the power of social media, adds a fantastic story to our conversation. We also talk about the importance of work-life balance, leadership, and well-being in the workplace. As we wrap up, John answers some fun lightning-round questions, revealing his dream vacation and who would star as him in a movie based on his life. Join us on this journey filled with personal stories, valuable life lessons, and heartwarming expressions of gratitude. You won't want to miss it.
