In any organization – whether it is athletic team, company, public service board, school administration, military unit … or any other type of group – the people within that organization are its most important and valuable resource.
Having the right players and right employees is a trait of great organizations.
One of the nine Gold Medal Strategies that I speak and right about – which I teach – is “Great Teams Are the Product of Picking the Right Players.”
“Great Teams Are the Product of Picking the Right Players” which is the title of Chapter 5 in my book, Gold Medal Strategies: Business Lessons from America’s Miracle Team.
Picking the right players is a process of not just picking the brightest, most talented, most gifted, and hardest working – but those who will work well within the system and culture of an organization, and who will be dedicated and committed to its mission and goals.
Recognize some of the best players may not be the right positions within your organization.
