Leadership from Tom Moore

February 10, 2013

I’ve often felt that the military (with all its faults firmly acknowledged) and high level sports (same) have benefited from excellent leadership…much more so than is generally found in the business world.

The quote below from ProFootballTalk.com is excellent evidence of my theory. American football coach, Tom Moore, could have been talking about a procurement department, consultancy, or technology services company.

“Football is a game of people,” Tom Moore said. “There are lots of systems. One of the things you want to make sure you do, and it’s what we are doing, you don’t come in with preconceived ideas. You don’t say, ‘I’m Tom Moore and this is what we’re going to do.’ It doesn’t work that way.”

There are not many in the business world intelligent/wise enough to adapt to the strengths of their people…those that do have a marked advantage over the competition.
