Practical Experience—This Deserves the Medium Weight of 2

Winners know how to push, scrap, argue vigorously, and elbow their way into the goal. They also know when to cooperate, be silent, be patient, and cover their position no matter how unpleasant it is, without complaint. Most remarkably they know when to turn up their energy, creativity, and skill simultaneously with the others on the team. They have a capacity to reach unheard-of heights of accomplishment, something I call a “championship surge.” It is an awesome characteristic and one that I seek in every team. One of my all-time favorites is Mr. Blaise Larson of the University of North Dakota. Blaise named his team’s enterprise “The Code” and crafted a remarkably well-reasoned financial section of the business plan for his team’s company, which is setting the global standard for DNA portraiture. The business plan won the North Dakota State Championship for business plans on January 15, 2003. Blaise also happened to be the starting fullback for the Fighting Sioux football team, NCAA Champions 2001, Division II. Winning the state championship on the business plan is also solid evidence of the success ethic of the CEO, Ms. Erin Dolezal.
