John Wooden was a Basketball Coach at UCLA from 1948 to 1975. Wooden coached UCLA to 10 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships in 12 years between 1963 and 1975. The best high school basketball players in the United States of America came to UCLA to study and play basketball. The players would shoot baskets from 25 to 30 feet. Coach Wooden told them that is great but now I want you to make 100 layup baskets in a row.
Having worked with Companies with poor supplier ratings, I discovered the need to go back to and review the basics, indeed it is essential for success. I worked with a Supplier that was scrapping 80 to 90% on a certain product line. A team approach was taken that consisted of the Executive Management Team, a Customer and 3 tiers of Suppliers, that collectively changed the results to 0% Scrap. I have also experienced working with a Customer and Supplier where the relationship was very tenuous. The Supplier could only produce 50% of their Customer’s requirements during the startup of a new product launch. I was able to work with a team that eventually made it possible for the Supplier to meet all of the Customer’s Requirements.
About Zapp! The lightning of empowerment. Most managers know that revitalization in their companies must occur from the ground up. But how do you get that message across to employees without applying the kind of pressure that makes them even less productive? The answer is empowerment. In this very motivational service, you will find specific strategies designed to help you encourage responsibility, acknowledgment, and creativity so that employees feel that they “own” their jobs.

The Peter Drucker theory of management embodies many modern management practices. Peter Drucker, also known as the Father of Modern Management Theory, coined terms and strategies that are still used today. He advocated for a more flexible, collaborative workplace, and the delegation of power across the board. According to Drucker, “management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” Unlike many early management theorists, Drucker thought that subordinates should have the opportunity to take risks, learn and grow in the workplace.
Drucker’s management theory embodies many modern concepts, including: Decentralization (He wanted all employees to feel valued and empowered, like their work and voice mattered. He believed in assigning tasks that inspire workers, and bringing supervisors and their subordinates together to achieve common, company goals.), Knowledge work (Knowledge workers are those whose jobs require handling or using information, such as engineers or analysts. Drucker placed high value on workers who solved problems and thought creatively. He wanted to cultivate a culture of employees who could provide insight and ideas.), Management by objectives (process that encourages employees of all levels to work together. Each worker has an equal say, sharing their own insight and opinions to reach common ground. From there, teams establish shared goals and delegate tasks according to skill sets and interests. There are five steps of MBO: Review goals, Set objectives, Monitor progress, Evaluate performance, and Reward employees), and S.M.A.R.T. (The acronym calls for each objective to be: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Oriented).

Coach John Wooden, the legendary UCLA coach who led his teams to numerous championships and double-digit winning streaks, began learning the rules of success at an early age. His father taught him that it was better to be the best person he possibly could rather than strive to be better than everyone else.
The Service Mission of the Unique Service Proposition (USP) is to be the best one can be rather than striving to be better than everyone else. If Team Members focus on being the best they can be they will achieve their goals. If not, they will be frustrated with not being better than everyone else. Frustration is realizing we need to deal with the way things are rather than the way we wish they were. Team members need to play the cards they have been dealt rather than the cards they were not dealt.
The aim is to be the best we can be and not be frustrated because of the way things are. We need to look at our circumstances and rise above the difficulties we encounter. “Discipline yourself and others won’t need to.” –John Wooden It is a very challenging instruction when we give it to ourselves. Sometimes when a leader lacks self-discipline, there is no one watching. “I coined my own definition of success, which is peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you’re capable,” Wooden said he considered every practice session to be a journey, an opportunity for daily improvement.
The purpose is to help, to prevent, to correct, to improve, rather than to punish. Criticism is not meant to punish, but rather to correct something that is preventing better results. The only goal is improvement. For an athlete to function properly, he must be intent. There has to be a definite purpose and goal if you are to progress. If you are not intent about what you are doing, you aren’t able to resist the temptation to do something else that might be more fun at the moment.
