A quote widely attributed to hockey great Wayne Gretzky is one you may be familiar with: “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it’s been.” These words have been applied to any number of business situations and have perhaps been overused. Even so, they illustrate an important recruiting principle that senior leaders should understand—one that many of the CEOs with whom I work are unaware.

On the good days as leader, you feel like a winning coach at the Super Bowl. On the bad days, you feel as though you’re skiing just a few feet ahead of an avalanche. Most days fall somewhere in between.

Whether you’re a fan or not, there are countless lessons to borrow from baseball and apply in business. As book critic, Jim Pawlak observed, “Both employ ‘players’ with specialties.  Both have All-Stars (aging, prime, budding,) “A” and “B (bench)” players.  Both deal with roster turnover and compete for free-agent talent. Both face competition and make in-game adjustments because of changing situations.  Both deal with budget constraints. To win, their players must be a team.”
