Winning Teams

The vision of a recent coaching engagement where I was brought in as a Coach by the HR was to build a strengths based team

Being the ‘story teller coach’ that I usually am,I shared the following story with them in one of the earlier meetings:

Lee Iacocca once asked legendary football coach Vince Lombardi what it 
took to make a winning team. The book entitled Iacocca records Lombardi’s  answer  

There are a lot of coaches with good ball clubs who know the fundamentals and have plenty of discipline but still don’t win the game. Then you come to the third ingredient: if you’re going to play together as a team, you’ve got to care for one another. You’ve got to love each other. Each player has to be thinking about the next guy and saying to himself: If I don’t block that man, Paul is going to get his legs broken. I have to do my job well in order that he can do his.  

The difference between mediocrity and greatness,” Lombardi said that night, “is the feeling those guys have for each other.”
