Success leaves clues. Like within our franchise system, most times there’s not a need to reinvent the wheel.
Instead, look for success at the highest levels and model it.
That’s the formula I have used for any success I have achieved to date. And one that I encourage you to do the same.
Recently, Steven Hadley sent me the recently published “The Leadership Secrets of Nick Saban.”
If you are not familiar, Saban is the undisputed best college football coach in history.
It’s an incredible read with some big takeaways from one of the best leaders in history. In the book, there are 11 leadership lessons Saban runs his program by.
We will explore them over the next 11 weeks starting with Lesson number 1 today.
Lesson 1. There is no “I” in the team. But there is an “I” in win.
Coach Saban preaches individual responsibility. His teams perform their best when individuals put the group first and do what is best for the team.
