Teamwork – A new concept?

Great article in yesterdays NY Times sports page about the San Antonio Spurs. In essence the secret of their winning formula is the fact that they emphasize teamwork, high character, low risk, and humility and payroll prudence. Sounds a lot like the New England Patriots. Tim Duncan, their superstar is selfless, a quiet leader who shows up night after night. He is defined by winning not personal statistics. Gregg Popovich is a coach who paid his dues; he is not a former pro player who was handed the job on a platter. This is great to see in today’s I, me, me world of self indulgent superstars. I hope more people take notice of their model and their success. Teamwork is the secret for any great organization at any level of sport and business.
