I saw a fascinating interview with coach Mike Krzyzewski, who is coaching the latest version of the “Dream Team” – the USA Olympic basketball squad. He was asked how he got these superstar athletes to check their egos at the door. His answer was quite illuminating…
He said he didn't expect his players to check their egos at the door. In fact he desires his players to have ego. But he wants them to channel that personal ego into the team ego.
There’s a powerful lesson in that.
P.S. I'm headed out tonight for another tour. I'll check in from Amsterdam
