Deion Sanders (aka “Prime Time”) is making news as the coach of the University of Colorado football team. As I understand it, their first win of the season equaled the total wins of last season. (Yes, the Buffs only won one game last year.)

Now the team has a new coach and only 12 players from last year’s team are on this year’s team.

This is a dramatic reshuffling of talent. But sometimes that is what you need to win. In this case, the talent shift started with the coach.

As Jocko Willink puts it: “There are no bad teams, just bad leaders.”

Leaders need to determine what it is going to take for their team to win. This includes looking at gaps in skills, fit with culture, and ability to get results.

If a leader can’t do that, then that leader is the threat to success.
