Adaptive Leadership


As IBM transitioned from the Gerstner to Palmisano, so are the Titans players are transitioning. Stretched/Strained/Broken Down –> Strengthened

“Nothing cooks without some heat”

Stress level is tolerable, not destructive, and the environment is productive. Participants uncomfortable - forced to act. Before -> dysfunctional + hopeless. After -> effective + hopeful.

‘Perfection’ as symbolism, not the actual objective

Julius elevated to apprentice in the student/teacher relationship; reminds players of coach’s original vision – perfection - fulfill it for themselves. Objective has been adapted…Perfection -> Win.
“The essence of a team is common commitment. Without it, groups perform as individuals; with it, they become a powerful unit of collective performance.” The Discipline of Teams

Common commitment regardless of Boone and Yoast’s different leadership styles

Empowerment - Coach Boone is accepting feedback from peers Chartering – we won’t survive

Learning – Statistical analysis

Mobilizing – State Championship is the goal

Re-aligning – the two coaches now working together Coach Boone - Wizard vs Warrior
