Coach Franklin Fires Up E|SPACES Crowd Coach Franklin Fires Up E|SPACES Crowd

By Phil Gibbs on May 21, 2012

Vanderbilt Coach James Franklin had the audience ready to   suit up and walk through a wall.  He presented his strategy for changing the culture at Vanderbilt, which can also be   translated to business.

The Chef And I Catering provided amazing food.  Also adding to the buzz of the morning was 104.5 The Zone’s Wake Up Zone, broadcasting live from an E|SPACES conference room.

Franklin described how growing up with meager circumstances in Philly and playing college football at East Stroudsburg formed his approach to being head coach at Vanderbilt.  He emphasized focusing on the process and letting the results take care of themselves and addressing the things you can control and not spending time on the things that you cannot.  According to Franklin, the secret sauce — don’t tell anyone — is hard work, attention to detail and collective mentality.

At one point, Franklin joked that everything he said was so simple.  But simple things can be powerful, especially when delivered and implemented with the passion that he brings to his role.
