N.E. Patriots Strong Bench The Difference

NFL: Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots(This post was written by Rick Dacri, October 1, 2013)

Vince Wilfork, the New England Patriot’s star defensive tackle and team captain was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s game and will be lost for the rest of the season. This is a major blow for the team. But with or without him, the game had to continue ands he was replaced immediately by an undrafted rookie and later by a player who had been cut by two other teams. The Patriots won the game.

Injuries are a fact of life in football and successful teams know this and prepare for it. They develop strong benches. Drafting the right players; trading for others; continuously training, coaching and mentoring younger players; and always developing their players to be ready whenever they are needed.

The Patriot’s success over the years can be attributed to their strong bench. What about your organization? If you suddenly lost a key employee, do you have people ready? Is you workforce well trained, versatile, and ready to step in when they are needed? Remember, like the Patriots, your success is dependent upon it.
