Winning big time!

I heard a presentation by Craig Lewis who helped the New Zealand Rugby League team achieve a huge sporting upset victory over Australia in 2005.

He asserted that the victory was not due to having the best players (technical execution) or the best coaching (tactical appreciation). It was using the Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement to develop a winning campaign.

The team believed they were the most passionate, developing the dream, vision and values that would help them achieve their goal.

They centered their campaign around this passion - calling it the WOW factor!

They developed themes and images that supported the philosophy.

The team won't win every game, but reflecting and learning help them to continuously improve.

How can you use these principles to help you achieve your dreams?
