Getting on the Right Bus
Lund, Jacalyn
Quest, v62 n4 p312-321 Nov 2010
This article presents the author's forty-fourth Amy Morris Homans commemorative lecture. In the lecture, the author offers her thoughts about the future of physical education profession and the role that this organization plays in moving educators from good to great. The conference theme draws from a book called "Good to Great" that examined why some companies have grown and prospered (Collins, 2001). To qualify as one of Collins' "great" companies, the company had to not only show excellence and market growth, but also needed to sustain this growth over an extended period of time. In a sense, the book looked at the past to see what had worked for these companies and why they have a bright future. The book lists ten themes that emerged from the data. In this lecture the author focuses on three of those themes: (1) having a Level 5 leader at the helm; (2) the hedgehog principle; and (3) getting the right people on the bus.
