Excellence in Sports - A Culture of Winning

Examples of excellence abound in literature, music, art - and sport.

In sport - excellence can be defined in many ways - however, it is frequently equated to winning - over a long period of time.

In the Wall Street Journal, the Atlanta Braves GM explains how and why the Braves have won 14 straight Divisional Titles.

The five tips for transforming a culture of losing - to a culture of winning:
  1. Gather everyone, communicate the plan and preach it daily.
  2. Constantly remind them it works.
  3. Don’t be afraid to get rid of people who don’t buy in.
  4. Make the lowest level employees feel as important to success as the top level executives.
  5. Show trust in everyone to do their jobs well.
