Lessons in Leadership from Nick Saban

November 01, 2012 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

Nick Saban, University of Alabama head football coach and leader of one of this season’s most successful football programs, recently shared some of his leadership lessons with Brian O’Keefe, assistant managing editor of Fortune Magazine.

How does he do it? “It’s all a part of the process,” Saban says.

Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Well, it has taken Nick Saban nearly four decades to develop what he calls “the Process.” How can you apply “the Process” to your business? Consider these tips from Saban himself:

1. Convince: “Get people to buy into it.” Saban knows how to draw a crowd. Demand for seats at Alabama football games has reached an all-time high, calling for Bryant Denny Stadium to be expanded. Today it holds 101,821 fans.

Every industry is different, and athletics is no exception. Fortunately, good leadership has strong themes that can be used in any field. Disney Institute?
