Bill Walsh's Winning Ways
Three Super Bowl rings attest to Bill Walsh as “The Genius” of modern professional football. But the care he took with his people and the meticulous planning and preparation that made his game work just as well in businesses as in football.
Bill Walsh was never a businessman. But business has much to learn from the brilliant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.... Time after time, Walsh used meticulous planning and training to turn ordinary teams into giant-killers, ready and able to trounce more talented opponents.
Consider that unforgettable moment in Walsh legend known simply as “The Catch.” With only 51 seconds left in the 1981--82 conference championship game, San Francisco trailed the Dallas Cowboys 27 to 21. Defeat--or victory--lay six yards ahead. Cool as ever, quarterback Joe Montana rifled a short pass to receiver Dwight Clark, who out-jumped three defenders to snag it high in the air. Touchdown! An extra-point kick clinched the victory.
