This is the career record of Larry Gelwix, coach of the Highland High rugby team (Salt Lake City) for more than three decades. This team was featured in the recent movie Forever Strong. Larry recently recorded a podcast with my friend Dr. Paul on Live on Purpose Radio. During this conversation Larry shares the strategies that have made his teams successful through the years. What struck me the first time I listened to this podcast is how beautifully these principles apply to product management, to leadership and to life in general. They have obviously worked for Larry and his rugby teams throughout the years. Here are the five championship strategies: Choose what team you’re going to play for. Decide what ‘jersey’ you’re going to wear in life, in love, in business, in relationships. Where is your loyalty? Where is your heart? Figure it out, make a decision and don’t look back. Don’t play with snakes. Every situation has a right and wrong; choose the right. Hit the field running. Attitude and effort are more important than natural ability. Attitude and effort are more important than natural smarts. Attitude and effort separate the champs from the chumps. Attitude follows behavior; if you want to change your attitude, change your behavior. Expect to win. Larry spells ‘win’ as an acronym, W.I.N., which stands for “what’s important now.&# Look at every situation and ask, “what do I need to accomplish?&# Then ask, “what’s important now?&# We need to look ahead and have goals for future success, and make choices right now that take us in that direction. Focus on the final score. Focus on the end game; focus on who you want to be; focus on what you ultimately want to achieve. In life we all write the script of the final person we want to be. If my final score is who I want to be — a man or woman of integrity, of honesty, of virtue, of hard work, of ethics — then I can sustain setbacks and difficulties that come. Living these five championship strategies will make an incredible difference in your success. As Larry says: “these strategies work!&# He has proven this as a coach and as a successful CEO.
