MInute by minute, Hoosiers offers managers great lessons in style, practice, and principle that can be adapted to a broad range of business situations. In addition, Hoosiers offers inspiration. It’s a movie to watch when our team is in the doldrums, facing overwhelming odds against success, or when you, as team leader, are facing moments of self-doubt. Yes, it’s predictable; we know the Huskers will win; we know Ollie will make that free throw; we know Jimmy will make the final shot in the championship game; and we know for sure that before the credits roll, Coach Dale and Myra will be an item. It’s all as corny as an Indiana August, and yet, it’s done so well that it transcends its predictability. The acting is extraordinary, the photography stunning and Jerry Goldsmith’s soundtrack should on every manager’s music playlist. Listening to it, one hears the pounding of the basketballs, smells the crisp air of late autumn, and knows that whatever project is at hand, success lies ahead.
