What do you call it?

Motivation, leadership, management? What is the appropriate word? After all, Major League Baseball calls them managers, not coaches like many other sports. Whatever you label it, many a CEO could learn a lesson or two from the Los Angeles Angels' Mike Scioscia. His unique style during spring training has his club buzzing.

It was John Wooden, another legendary sports coach (college basketball) who once said, "It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." Scioscia's assignments keep his players learning and puts them all, veteran and rookie, on an equal footing. I don't know how this will translate to performance on the diamond, but I can't help thinking that his players are better off for it.
