Lou Holtz and MGMA

lou holtzAt the MGMA Annual Conference, AC, Lou Holtz the hall of fame Football coach of schools such as Arkansas, Notre Dame, and South Carolina gave the Opening Key Note address. What a great presentation.

He talked about a five-part plan built around the idea that “titles are from above, leaders are from below!” What a concept!

His five-part plan:
  • Attitude – have fun and add value to your self and your practice.
  • Passion to succeed – to win in his world, your definition of success is yours but you must have a passion for it.
  • Focus on your purpose – we are individuals but in the world we are a team, one that needs each other to achieve our purpose.
  • Make sure you are growing and not dying, we need something to hope for.
  • Make good choices, help your children make good choices (your fellow employees make good choices).
His acronym here was to WIN – what this stands for is
  • What’s
  • Important
  • Now
His three rules:
  • Do what’s right
  • Do everything to the best of your ability
  • Show people you care
Throughout his presentation he offered stories to support each of these key points – awesome for an 83 year old who was up and on TV until 3 AM Eastern time and spoke to us at 3 PM Pacific time!

Above all – in the football vernacular – do not attack the performer, attack the performance!

Very glad to have had the opportunity to hear him!
