Yesterday I wrote about the importance of having a great team to take advantage of opportunities. Today, I want to emphasize that having great talent is important, it’s also extremely important to have proper positions.
In football, having great offensive linemen but no quarterback or running backs will not lead to success.
In volleyball, having great outside hitters but no setter will not lead to success.
A symphony lacking a percussion section will most likely fail.
A great team might develop a great product but if there isn’t marketing and sales it might fail.
Great salespeople without a staff to back them up in order to fulfill the sales will most likely fail.
It’s not just about having some great people. You need to make sure you have the right people in the right positions and when you do, great things can happen.
Have a great day!
