Bill Sanford Leads Job Design Session for USPA
Bill Sanford recently conducted a session on Bell Leadership’s Job Design process for executive team of The United States Polo Association (USPA) in West Palm Beach, FL. The Job Design process was developed by Dr. Gerald D. Bell as a way to help leaders identify the most important things to work on; to develop specific, measurable, well thought-out goals and plans; and to do so in a way that promotes teamwork, collaboration, cross-functional communication, and accountability. It also provides a solid basis for performance reviews and performance management. The Job Design process is also taught in Bell Leadership’s Leader’s Job and Selecting Achievers seminars in Chapel Hill, NC.
The United States Polo Association was created in 1890 by H. L. Herbert. The USPA was formed to act as the national governing body for the sport of polo in America and Canada. It is dedicated to growing recognition for polo, organizing tournaments, establishing rules, creating educational programs, coordinating interscholastic and intercollegiate competitions, and providing the handicaps for polo players all over the country. The organization is continually creating new programs for people to learn the sport and develop American players, as well as maintaining guidelines for the safety and wellbeing of the polo ponies. There are over 250 clubs registered with the USPA and over 4,500 members. The USPA is always growing and building stronger roots for the sport of polo.
