“Winning has a price and leadership has a price,” Michael Jordan says. But are you willing to pay that price? Jordan’s recent documentary “The Last Dance” really inspired me to think about what role leadership played in his team’s success, and I wanted to share some of my favorite takeaways from this movie.
Listen, if you want to be a champion, then you’ve got to work harder than anybody else. That kind of statement seems like a given, but when you listen to Jordan, you realize that he puts new meaning into the word “hustler”.
I’ve had leaders and teachers that I respect, and they were always ones that pushed me hard. There was no easy “A” in their class, and honestly, they were kind of mean. But I learned more, worked harder, and really earned that “A” in the end.
What kind of standard are you going to hold your team to? If you’ve got standards for your team, are you meeting those standards yourself? And what kind of leader are you going to be?
Listen and learn:
- How Michael Jordan’s generosity shaped his team’s success
- Applying Jordan’s leadership lesson to your own business is probably going to require some change on your part.
- Get inspired about how you can better serve your “team”.
