You may not love football, or any sports at that... but don't let that cloud your judgement about the coaches that run these teams. I mean, how easy could it be to wrangle 60+ men to make history or even miracles? Coaches are some of the greatest leaders. Here's how Dave Ramsey describes football coaches, "they know how to motivate and inspire a large group of people to work together toward the same goal". Can't you apply that to most any position of leadership? To be better managers, bosses, or even better parents we want to inspire people to follow us and believe in our goal rather than force them. Here are some amazing take-a-ways from Dave's blog on '5 Leadership Lessons from Football Coaches':
1. Don’t be afraid of change.
2. Teach. Don’t shout.
4. Put a culture in place.
5. Stay patient.
Leadership can be a daunting, difficult, time consuming role - but also a very rewarding one as well. So we end with this, how will you lead your team to make history and as always, be a better human?
