Behind every winning team is a great coach.
For example, England’s cricket team has just won the one day series against Australia in 2010. Australia are the side to beat. So how did England do it?
Their coach, Andy Flower, is a great coach. Watch what he does when they lose a few wickets. Does he flap and panic, dancing about on the side and remonstrating with the umpires? No he just goes back to his notes.
He’s collecting data. Objectively. He’s refusing to allow his emotions to dictate his actions.
Next he’s feeding back constructively to his team. At the right time.
Third: there are no prima donnas! Well in fact there always are, but that’s not what gets rewarded here. Team contribution does. There is no point being the greatest player in the world if you team loses.
