learned a lot of lessons that I believe are key to being successful,"

"Building a winning team starts with people. One of the key elements I
will have the opportunity to share through this program is how to select
the right people, motivate them and work within a team environment,"
said Gibbs. "Most of the victories I've had in life have been when I've
stuck to the game plan. Now, Strayer has created the Joe Gibbs
Performance Management program for me to share those principles."
