When I left my NFL playing days behind and entered into what I thought would be the organized, disciplined, team-first culture of corporate America, I was amazed to discover that for the most part, organizations seemed as if they were winging it. That’s right—winging it! Wasted time, wasted energy and wasted talent. I found many to be lethargic, directionless and chaotic, with no sense of true urgency to win now. Mired in complacency and false urgency the tenor of many was what “they were doing was just fine,” lacking any resolve to take on the competition. Organizations need to get back to the fundamentals of winning by maximizing human performance. Developing, coaching and growing their talent to go after wins with deep-felt determination.
