"Having the right people in the right places. Having the right players in the right positions on the team." Both statements highlight the importance for organisations, both business and sports, to have people with the necessary talent. Managers who select for talent give their organisation a head start in reaching higher levels of performance. And although not every coach can consistently win with talent, no coach can win without it. Putting the best talent into the right kind of environment will enable managers in organisations and coaches in teams to achieve better outcomes. This is the third trait of successful organisations and teams - knowing exactly what talent is needed and selecting people with this talent for the key positions.
