I was fortunate enough to be on the coaching staff of the “Dream Team”, the historic United States Olympic Gold Medalist in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Let me show you the principles that head coach Chuck Daly implemented with the greatest TEAM of all-time.

THE X’s & O’s of leadership

Strategy is an essential part of coaching, but Leadership is what drives your team to win games, achieve success and profitability. The concepts I share can be taught to all of your leaders and is designed to help take your team to the next level. These concepts include: how to motivate both individuals and your team on a daily basis, getting your team to buy-in to the role you have given each person, coaching individuals to their strengths and coaching each person differently.

developing your championship game plan

The ability to “Change” is one of the most critical aspects of Leadership. You must be able to adapt and pivot on a moment’s notice to enable your team to win. While it may be true that most people are not comfortable with change, leaders who understand the dynamics of change are proven to be far more successful. When your entire team has mastered leading change, you have created a competitive advantage that will allow your team to crush your competition.
