UCONN HUSKIES Women’s Basketball Team Success Secrets Wouldn’t you love to lead in business the way the UCONN Huskie women’s basketball team leads on the court?

You don’t have to be a basketball fan to love March Madness!

One of the many reasons I love sports is because they are such a great analogy for life. You win some, you lose some and you don’t always get the call(s)!

For example, Saturday night my beloved Wisconsin Badgers men’s team lost to the Florida Gators in an exhilarating buzzer beater (#On Wisconsin).

While on Tuesday evening my state’s team – the women’s reigning basketball champion UCONN HUSKIES continued their domination with another not-even-close victory over Oregon.

You win some, you lose some!

Of course nothing in sports (or life) is a sure slam dunk, but it looks as if Geno Auriemma’s HUSKIES are well on their way to winning their 5th consecutive national championship.

The word unprecedented is often overused; however, the UCONN Women Huskies basketball program continues to achieve unprecedented greatness with the most consecutive NCAA wins – 111 and counting, most consecutive national championships – 4 on the way to 5 – and the list of achievements goes on and on.

UCONN Huskies Secret to Success

You know you have transcended your sport when not only other coaches, but also leaders in every industry are in awe of what a program has accomplished. And they seek to emulate it.

Coaches and players from all sports and geographical locations pilgrimage to Storrs, CT, home of the Huskies, in search of this powerhouse programs’ winning formula.

Here is what they have discovered.

Drumroll please.

First and foremost.

There is NO secret success formula! There is NO unique coaching skill set that Geno or his legendary assistant Chris Daly transmits to the Huskies that result in their greatness.

Rather, the UCONN Huskies success is based upon a tried and true formula operationalized throughout the ages – in sports, business and life. The formula is not hidden in Geno’s playbook or any other book.

What makes this program so successful?

High expectations, an unrelenting attention to detail rooted in the fundamentals along with an uncompromising work ethic based on persistence and consistency. These are the Huskies guiding principles that Geno and his staff utilize to catapult the UCONN Huskies to greatness, year after year after year.

If you want to achieve success in your career and/or your life, allow these three principles to guide your actions.

3 Principles for Success

1. High EXPECTATIONS. Expect to do your best – and give your all – 100% of the time. Not only when you feel like it, but perhaps more importantly, when you don’t feel like it.

For the Huskies, nothing less than their absolute best is acceptable – not just during game day – but during every practice, during every single drill, during every single moment they set foot on the court.

High expectations define the UCONN Huskies mindset – anything less is unacceptable.

Parents, you should take note of these principles and consider them to be your “best practices” for parenting. Your kid’s teachers, coaches, peers and community will thank you! And you might actually be able to stop financially supporting your kids once they enter adulthood – which begins, more of less at 21 years old, not 30 years old.

But I digress.

2. Unrelenting attention to detail rooted in the fundamentals of the game.

IF you want to learn or teach anyone the fundamentals of basketball, watch the Huskies at play. Every single time the HUSKIES are on the court, they put on a passing, shooting and running clinic – with an emphasis on doing it the right way.

You will also notice there is very little, if any showboating from this team.

The fundamentals of basketball are rooted in a team effort – it is truly about “we” and not about “me”.

Countless times you’ve watched Geno upset after the HUSKIES scored a basket or earned another “W”? Why? Because the results were secondary to the way the Huskies played. If they played sloppy or ignored the fundamentals – the basket or win was irrelevant. The emphasis is on the game being played correctly.

Geno states: “It’s about doing it in a way that it can’t be done any better. That is the goal every day.”

Which leads me to the Huskies third guiding principle for success.

3. Work Ethic comprised of persistence & consistency.

Practice doesn’t make perfect.

Perfect practice makes perfect.

In “So Good They Can’t Ignore You,” author Cal Newport states that incredible success comes from expert practicing. “… they can push themselves to the exact limit of their skillset and thus expand their abilities day after day. If you’re not expanding yourself in such a fashion – called deliberate practice – in the org psych lit – you’ll never be ridiculously successful.”

This concept goes beyond Malcolm Gladwell’s belief that ten thousand hours is the magic number needed to achieve greatness. Is it not just about the time put in, rather it is about the way the time is put in.

Perfect practice makes perfect – as Geno’s above quote emphasized!

Watching the UCONN Huskies play basketball is like watching poetry in motion.

When this happens, we are tempted to think the team and its program are comprised of superhuman geniuses. They aren’t. The Huskies are just like you and me.

With one exception.

It is this one exception that differentiates good teams from great teams, good companies from great companies, and good leader from great leaders.

And this exception is the norm for the UConn Huskies Women’s basketball program: high expectations, an unrelenting attention to details and an incomparable work ethic.

Anything less is unacceptable.

Oh – and one more thing #playlikeagirl.

Do You Have the “It” Factor?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Do you have the "it" factor?Wouldn’t you love to be that guy or gal that everyone wants to be around?

The person who commands a “presence” when they walk into a room.

The person who exhibits magnetism that makes others naturally gravitate towards them.

Everyone wants to be on his or her team.

Everyone wants to work with them – or for them.

Question: So what exactly is “it” that these people possess?

Answer: Executive Presence

What is Executive Presence?

Sylvia Ann Hewlett states that Executive Presence is seen in the way you act, look and sound.

People with executive presence exhibit confidence, competence, poise, effective communication skills and the ability to remain calm in the eye of the storm -all fundamental characteristics of executive presence.

If you don’t look, act and sound like an executive or leader, it will be extremely difficult to be perceived as one or to become one.

Here’s the really good news. Executive Presence can be learned.

3 Key Ingredients Essential to Executive Presence

1. Gravitas – how you act or behave is perhaps the single most important component of Executive Presence.

Why You MUST Fail to Succeed

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Why You MUST Fail to Succeed Remember the time you failed miserably at something? Or you didn’t get the job – or promotion you so desperately wanted?

At the time you felt as if it was the worst thing that ever happened to you.

Many times when you look back at those failures however, you’ve come to realize what you thought was almost the end of your world was, in fact, the best thing that could’ve happened to you.

How You Handle Failure

As Malcolm Forbes said: “Failure is success if we learn from it.”

How you handle your failures will determine how these failures chart your future course.

Will you allow your failures to shipwreck you? Or will you use your failures to chart a new and improved course?

Thomas Edison’s Light Bulb Failures

It is often said that Thomas Edison failed 1000 times before successfully inventing the prototype of the light bulb.

When a reporter asked Edison how it felt to fail 1,000 times, Edison replied: “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention of 1,000 steps.”

If we allow failure to define us – it will surely destroy us.

But if you embrace your failure and look at it as an opportunity to learn from it – you will grow and prosper from it.

We often learn very little from our successes.

Failure however is often our greatest teacher.

Embrace failure as a necessary step towards your future success.

If you allow it, failure will act as a laser that is focused on the areas in your work and life that need improvement.

Do not be afraid to fail – as it is success’ predecessor!

body-language-sml

Wouldn’t it be of tremendous value to know how to read someone’s body language?

Research shows approximately 55% of all communication comes from body language. Can you imagine what an advantage it would be to your career and your personal relationships if you were able to hear what is not being said!

(Guys, this might really come in handy for you one day – just sayn!)

High Emotional Intelligence & Body Language

Not coincidentally, people with high emotional intelligence are well aware of the importance of non-verbal communication. They pay close attention to body language and other non-verbal cues while communicating with others.

Here’s some really good news. Everyone can learn to read body language.

Following are ten secret tools of the trade for reading body language. With a little effort you can implement these tools and gain an incredible advantage (and boost) to your career and personal relationships.

10 Secrets Tools for Reading Body Language

Let’s start with the face.

1. When Someone is Smiling – Watch their Eyes. A true, authentic smile creates a crinkling of the skin around the outside corner of the eyes. This crinkling is commonly referred to as crow’s feet.

If someone’s smile doesn’t produce crow’s feet around their eyes, this suggests their smile may not be genuine. The person smiling may be hiding their true feelings or thoughts from you.

A happy smile is defined by crow’s feet – and you can’t fake it.
