‘We are Geelong.. the Greatest Team of all..
We are Geelong.. we’re always on the Ball..’
(For those of you who don’t know.. this is the Geelong Football Club theme song)
What a game..!! One of the best AFL Grand Finals of all time (in my humble opinion..)
Who would have thought all those years ago in our lectures at UWA that Cooky would have been CEO at 2 AFL Clubs and steered them to 4 premierships…. 2 in 3 years for Geelong.. Absolutely amazing…
(Yet.. it’s all Science… he applied management science that Dr Glenn Watkins taught us all..)
And you can hear from the man himself…
Get Brian Cook’s inside management secrets at http://www.FreeGiftfromBluerocket.com.. even listen to a sample of the interview for free… 4 Premierships…you might pick up an idea or two..
Well done Cooky..an honor to know you (and a damn good bloke too..)
And some great lessons from this weekends Grand Final for you and me..
In the pre match commentary Coach Mark Thompson had a theme for the team..
STAY CALM.. (last year we were under too much pressure.. finishing on top..being favorites..etc..)
OVERAROUSAL IS THE ENEMY..
The match was an arm wrestle.. a game of massive pressure.. 99,000 screaming fans..
world tv audience..
St Kilda missed so many chances in the opening quarter.. they missed goals they would normally get in their sleep..
Geelong just kept coming back…
As Coach Thompson said earlier in the day ‘you need every bit of energy you can find.. you don’t need to be too tense and waste energy.’
To the degree you have drama, stress, friction, overarousal in your game.. is the degree you will make poor decisions and poor performance..
Calm… Focus… Synergy…. Laser Beam with Fluidity…
THE LAST 5%
And so it was.. in the last 5 minutes… 5 of 100 minutes… 5%…. Geelong broke away and won the game..
95 minutes of neck and neck.. even.. pressure… and 5 minutes of controlling the game..
THE ENGINE ROOM
In the first quarter, St Kilda controlled the centre.. they kept getting it out and into the 50 metre forward zone..
Coach Thompson made his move.. 2007 Brownlow medallist Jimmy Bartels gets the mission.. shut down Lenny Hayes..
The stats will tell the story… Geelong started to get more ball into their 50 metre zone..
So how is your engine room..?
Are you getting enough ball into your 50?
Are you getting enough opportunity to kick goals?
What do you need to do to generate more opportunity?
You can’t score goals if the ball doesn’t come into your scoring zone..
And you can’t win games if you don’t discover what your opposition is doing well and find ways to nullify it..
Hungry Jacks right now will be plotting into the early hours of the morning as McDonalds have a massive hit with the Angus Burger.. (more scoring opportunities with a Premium product.. but that’s another story..)
FINALLY.. WHY GOOD STUDENTS MAKE MORE..
This week, with two of our clients from two separate companies… great students..
They didn’t sit there and look for how Blue Rocket were either mad, wrong or just plain nit wits..
They took what we taught them and IMPLEMENTED.. the big ‘I’ word..
One took our POMVIC strategy and document… and doubled his closing rate.. (to the point where they have gone from worrying about where the next job will come from to now being worried about being booked out for the next 4 months…with too much work..)…
The other.. taking our Deconstruct Best Practice/ Benchmarking process… and has made himself another $180,000 NET PROFIT for this year..
I love it..
We love it..
They love it..
It’s brilliant… DON’T THINK… DO….
Nike has been telling us for years….’JUST DO IT..’
Don’t sit around whinging about lack of sales, not reaching budget, the market, the GFC (Global Financial Crisis..)
There is hidden money.. hidden opportunities in your business..
You just need some help to find them..
