Obviously, the goal is to keep people in positions they are best and happiest at. But that isn't always an option and the people who are admired the most are those that have versatility, positive attitudes, good learning abilities, are team players, and put the love of winning with their team ahead of what makes them comfortable or happy in the moment.
