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.
Beyond that, they seem to have cracked the code when it comes to recruiting (winning on a consistent basis doesn’t hurt the cause).
