Stop giving chances, start giving lessons.
It takes talent, drive, and determination to make a champion player. What makes a champion team? That’s the question Brad asks Coach Jamy Bechler, a basketball coach turned professional consultant who helps organizations of any size rebound from a bad patch.
With Brad having just recently revamped the LightSpeed VT vision statement to gear up for his company’s hiring spree, Coach’s timing couldn’t be better. After all, who doesn’t like working with a clean slate?
While Brad’s purpose for the future couldn’t be clearer, he’s still got some lingering concerns about how to coach current employees into greatness. “What do I do if someone’s a great fit, but they don’t have the talent for a certain position?” he asks Jamy.
“Look,” Jamy replies, “you’re in the people business. It’s important to stop giving those team members chances to do better, and start teaching them how they can.”
Tune in to hear Coach Jamy Bechler and Brad Lea in this episode with more bombs on running a business than we’ve ever had before. If you’re in a leadership position, get ready to have your mind blown!
