Focus on Those with the Most Potential

June 22nd 2006

Former San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Bill Walsh once said:

“Take a group of ten players. The top two will be super motivated. Superstars will usually take care of themselves. Anybody can coach them. The next six, with the right motivation and direction, will learn to perform up to their potential.

“The last two will waste your time. They won’t be with you for long. Our goal is to focus our organization detail and coaching on the middle six. They are the ones who most need and benefit from your direction, monitoring, and counsel.”

Although Walsh is speaking about professional football players, his thoughts relate well to most business teams.
