4. Spend hours watching your competitors
For American football, you must understand the strengths and weaknesses, the trends of the opponent. Coughlin knew the Patriots’ weakness was the midfield, so Eli Manning was launched and passed his first 10 ball lines. In business, the Executive Director must make the same effort to study competitors.
Where do they advertise? What is their best product? Their activities on social networks Twitter and Facebook give the young players a chance to shine, and during the 2011-12 season, coach Coughlin gave a lot of opportunities to young players.
When an injury occurs, these players can confidently fill the void because they have some experience playing football in the NFL. You will not be able to know if young employees can improve their professional skills if they do not give them the responsibility to do a real job. Not everyone will succeed, but this will help create a work environment in which every employee finds themselves part of the company.
6. Plan your match carefully
A good coach will know exactly how he wants his team to play before it takes a long time to play. He knew his team’s strong points and devised tactics to beat his opponents. An Executive Director will plan marketing campaigns, introduce new products and customer service accurately, very limited change.
8. Put the whole team above the star players
The high-priced players cannot guarantee success. The Giants didn’t have the best players in the NFL, but Coughlin gathered an excellent team based on individuals who didn’t stand out from the rest of the team. A smart CEO will be able to get employees working together to maximize the capacity of all, creating internal teams and a collaborative working atmosphere.
Above are the leadership lessons from a great American football coach. Hopefully, these lessons are helpful to you in some ways!
