Thoughts on Cubs’ WS Win

Just a few observations about Leadership relating to Cubs’ “Worst to First” in five years.

  • Full Commitment to a Vision, and relentlessly getting all on-board.
  • Attention to Detail was critical; scouting, coaching, organization.
  • Invest wisely; no chasing past judgement mistakes.
  • “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Crane Kenny.
  • “It’s the Players and all about the Players.”  Joe Maddon.
  • Talent still needs mentoring and coaching.  Talent alone produces only individual results.
  • Next year begins today!

Maybe obvious, but being a Leader, assembling a group of Leaders, and coaching Leaders is still what differentiates the best from the rest.

Cheers.  Go Cubs!
