Be the hedgehog. The Single-Goal Leader.
In the story "The Fox and The Hedgehog" the author writes "the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing."
Jim Collins in "Good to Great" adds "Hedgehogs...simplify a complex world into a single organizing idea, a basic principle or concept that unifies and guides everything."
How to create a Development Zone Culture is the one big thing that youth sports leaders need to know. It is an organizing principle that unifies everything we do in the course of a day, a season, a year, a career. This one thing is so important that a youth sports leader needs to be what I call a Single-Goal Leader.
Edgar Schein says it is hard to imagine employees crisply implementing what needs to be done if the culture doesn't value and reinforce efficient operations.
Peter Drucker sums it up "Culture eats strategy for breakfast."
It is our goal as Fargo Angels leaders to create the Development Zone Culture, the space in which participants grow and flourish as athletes and people. "Better Athletes, Better People."
