    From HR world, they list ten coaches who could be exceptional CEO's, Phil Jackson makes the list at #1, at #2 is BB.. too bad Dungy and Shanahan make the list although further down..

    http://www.hrworld.com/features/10-coaches-exceptional-ceos-052208/

    In the book “How to Think Like a CEO: The 22 Vital Traits You Need to Be the Person at the Top,” author D.A. Benton created a list of 22 important traits shared by the more than 100 CEOs that she interviewed for the book. When people commonly think of CEOs, they tend to think of very visible corporate leaders like Warren Buffett and Jack Welch. However, CEOs exist in any business operation in which an individual leads a group of employees with the objective of performing at a high level to reach a business goal.


    2. Bill Belichick: Head coach, New England Patriots

    Coaching Record: 127 - 81 with the Cleveland Browns and the New England Patriots through the 2007 season; three Super Bowl victories

    Top CEO Trait: Be Willing to Admit Mistakes, Yet Be Unapologetic

    Trait Example: In conjunction with the “Spygate” scandal, Belichick admitted that a misinterpretation of the NFL Constitution and Bylaws led him to authorize the taping of opponent practices, which he apologized for in a CBS Interview with Armen Keteyian. However, it was quite clear that Belichick’s belief that the regulation in question (which forbids the videotaping of opponents during games) meant that he could tape opponents at any time besides during games. Clearly, Belichick believed that his mistake was a technical violation of NFL rules, but he did not apologize for act itself.

    They don't want to, if they described BB as a brilliant strategist.. they would not have anything to talk about tommorrow and go on and on and on and on and on...

    History will be very good to BB, in the meantime He can been seen on TV's and football stadiums across the country delivering a type of revenge no one has ever witnessed before.

    He's gonna go down as the best ever.

    After having read Education of a Coach and Patriot Reign there are several other traits that are more critical to Belichick's success than the one listed above that would translate well to being a CEO in my opinion. However I can't blaim the author for finding a hot topic and using it for this article. It's a far better opinion than the spin many other have pummeled BB with lately.

    It's an HR article and should be treated as such. They're not going to pontificate about his strategic acumen because it doesn't fit the text-book lists.I think there are at least two better places where they should have touched, however.

    First, the value of having your tallent maximized. They way the Patriots gameplan is the envy of everyone who is not at the apex of an organization. You know that when you are given an assignment, the project will succeed if you do your job. You are going to be placed in the best possible situation for your skill set. You are going to have your tallents maximized and your shortcomings minimized. You know that you will be better prepared than your competition. That knowledge is incredibly motivating.

    Second, Belichick staffs incredibly well. He doesn't go out seeking "superstars", he seeks people who can execute his vision exceptionally well. He doesn't look for a reniassance man who would spread his tallents too far, diluting his core value. He acquires people with different, highly complimentary skill sets within each group. This enables the group to handle situations and remain fluid. Essentially, Belichick's schematic flexability is an example of a small company mentality in a large organization. Think DEC in the mid 80's before the business outgrew Olsen.

    I think these are far better examples of his tallents than the spygate example. Than again, the target is middle-managers anyway. So, touching on the two previous points would be like trying to sell The Economist to Time subscribers.

    So Tony Dungy is on there because he's a "nice guy"? Sorry, but I don't think a zombie would make a very good CEO.

    Uh, what?

    Anyway, I'm so friggin' sick and tired of hearing how much of a Christian Dungy is at every turn, like it's an accomplishment.

    And whoever wrote Larry Brown's should become his PR guy, because I almost forgot that Brown is a mercenary who quits on every team he coaches.

    Yeah, I can just see Dungy imploring his employees to pray for better sales so they won't get laid off.
