Management in Life

The time has come to hire a new coach for your local youth hockey team, the Flying Falcons. The city, having won the district championship last year, is justifiably proud of its youth hockey program. Unfortunately, half of the team members feel that the last coach, Morty McGraw, was too hard on the team, and half of them feel that he was too easy. As a result, everyone is arguing, and most of them are upset and angry with Morty and the league officers. Everyone knows how to play the game, and they all respect the coach, because he's the coach, but now you need a leader that everyone can agree is effective.
