Do your employees think you’re a Bear?

“He wasn’t just a coach,” former USC coach John McKay said of the original Bear. “He was the coach.”

Bear Bryant made a career out of turning around floundering teams. In all his years of coaching college football, he racked up just one losing season and made Maryland, Kentucky, Texas A&M, and Alabama into football powerhouses.

“Motivating people [is] the ingredient that separates winners from losers—in football, in anything,” Bryant wrote. Worker recognition was never far from this legendary manager’s mind: “Be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms.”
