I don’t know his name, and I’m also not sure which team he plays for, either the Chiefs or the Broncos. The reason I don’t know more is that the last time the two teams played, there was a blizzard going on in KC. You really couldn’t even see across the field.
But about two hours before kickoff, the network cut to a shot in KC of this guy on the field, in a track suit, wearing his headphones. And even though there was about 3 inches of snow on the field, this guy was out there, lying on his back, going through his pre-game stretching routine.
This is emblematic of why the guy made it to the NFL, the top of the game, in the first place, and why he’s probably going to be around for a while. He found out what works, and he stuck with it.
True in business as well, including the front office of the original Dallas Cowboys, where I worked as a contract employee for 14 seasons. We were constantly reviewing what worked and what didn’t, and only hanging on to what did.
If you’re having problems – with turnover, with lack of team cohesion, with employee dissatisfaction, there are solutions. And the solutions come from that front office that was so successful from 1960 to 1988.
The solutions are easy to implement, the results are easy to spot, and the gains are all but assured.
