Be Decisive

DECISION MAKING

The world of elite sports is cut throat. Leadership requires making difficult decisions on a daily basis that can lead to high criticism and even job loss. Being a coach is all about making decisions, both before and during matches – strategies, team-picking, substitution. Decision making entails problem solving. Finding efficient ways to solve problems or handle situations without having a negative effect on the team’s harmony or cohesion is no easy task. There is much to consider.

FORMING A MASTERMIND GROUP

Leadership is not a singular operation, it is a group effort. If you are trying to build a business or lead a sports team, it is important to surround yourself with the right people who share your vision and core beliefs. This means deciding on the right staff or an association. Putting together a mastermind group is not always easy. This entails a coordination of knowledge and effort. The human mind is a form of energy, a part of it being spiritual in nature. When the minds of two people are coordinated in a spirit of harmony, the spiritual units of energy of each mind form an affinity, which constitutes the “psychic” phase of the master mind (Napoleon Hill, 1937, p. 149). It is important to analyze your weaknesses and find people who are more knowledgeable than you in certain areas. This way, the group can play off each other’s strengths and help makeup for potential weaknesses.
