The Systems Coach: Bill Belichick

Quick article on New England Patriot's coach, Bill Belichick from the latest issue of the Wharton Leadership Digest. I call him a next-generation or new-model type of professional coach. He is not a "master motivator" like his mentor, Bill Parcells. He is a quiet professional. In this article he gives his five features of his coaching style. See the article for a more in-depth look:

  • Develop a system
  • Teach and adjust the system
  • Instill discipline
  • Recruit the best within the budget
  • Support the team
