Dream Fulfiller - What Winning Sports Coaches Have to Do With Attraction and Retention in the Workforce

Written by Kevin Watson - Director of Business Development

For those of you that are avid college athletics fans, your team’s success each year typically depends on the following; their ability to recruit, to get the most out of their talent, get players to gel as a cohesive unit, and to keep players on the field/court/etc. (healthy and out of trouble). If you think about it, the same is probably true in your line of work as well.

Few coaches have been able to crack this code over the past seven years better than Alabama’s head football coach, Nick Saban and Kentucky’s head basketball coach, John Calipari.

*Disclaimer – I’m not a big fan of these coaches (in part because they always seem to be winning, and they don’t coach for my alma mater).

They both have an uncanny ability to get the most out of their players and to get their players to gel as a cohesive unit.

Give a Little Whistle

An oddly high number of crickets have been chirping near the Brunswick County Career Center lately. How serendipitous it is that the song, “Give a Little Whistle” by Jiminy Cricket came up in conversation with a team member on the topic of doing what’s right. People are often told to let their conscience be the guide in making decisions, but when you can’t rely on your conscience, “Give a Little Whistle” and instead let your Values be your guide. A conscience can waiver with emotion and vary from person to person, but a stable and unchanging set of company values and code of conduct standards can help guide a team toward success, especially when the team is faced with challenging decisions.
