Last night I joined millions of Americans and watched the BCS National Championship game between LSU & Alabama.
The two teams have been champion football programs for the past decade combining to win four of the past nine national championships.
While there are differences between the two programs, both have several things in common that are characteristics of all great organizations.
1. They have great leaders. Say what you want about Nick Saban and Les Miles (I am not a fan of either), but they are both winners.
2. Both leaders are great at attracting top talent. Recruiting is a strength for both teams.
3. Both teams have done a great job of placing their talent in the right positions.
If you want to have a great organization, be a great leader, attract great talent, and focus on talent placement.
Doing so will make you a champion too.
