A Culture of Success – Part 3

Culture of Success Part 3

In this final section about the culture of success, it is important to recognize this culture cannot just be relied upon to be absorbed by new players, new support staff, or remain fresh in the minds of those who have been associated with the team for seasons.

For the culture of success to continue it needs constant attention and nurturing. Keeping a very close eye on this culture is a primary role of the coach. Identifying when and why corners are being cut, understanding what the handbrakes are that are preventing, or will prevent, this culture from prevailing in everything the team does, is a significant key to unlocking how success continues to breed success.

The culture of success is an extremely powerful force that can reside within every organisation. It takes time to create, capture and continue, but is a critical investment if a team, company or organization wants to be a world leader.
