Recently I heard a college basketball coach make the following statement. “All of my players are role players. Some have bit parts and a few. Are stars.” His job was to get each role player to excel in their role. What a great way to look at our/your business. Are your people subordinates or role players? Are they as good as they can be,mor are we as leaders helping them get better? It was very clear how the coach felt. He was just as concerned with the role players development as the stars. To get there, his first priority was to evaluate his own performance. If he gets better, then he can help others do the same. Seems like good advice.
