Tim Tebow shows that in sports, there’s no faking leadership and Bruce Boudreau and Randy Edsall could take note – The Washington Post.
“Someone who tries to force others to do his bidding isn’t a leader; he’s a warlord. Leadership only works when other people find you credible and grant you their cooperation.”
Sally Jenkins, a Washington Post sports columnist, recently wrote a piece on Tim Tebow’s (Denver Broncos quarterback) leadership ability. I think it’s a great article on demonstrating authentic leadership, no matter what your role in life is. Of course it’s easier said than done…and not everyone/everyplace will allow you to lead in this manner…however, this is wisdom that’s worth striving for! So the million dollar question is…Who will follow you?
“DO WHAT YOU LOVE”: Watch Steve Jobs’ Fantastic Stanford Commencement Speech In 2005.
I am a huge fan of Steve Jobs. Here is one of the best motivational speeches I’ve heard in a while. Job reveals how he turned pain and heartache into a passionate quest to follow his dreams. On a personal level I can relate to Jobs’ story, as I go through an episode of life that is a significant paradigm shift for me. I gladly share this video clip I discovered, with anyone who needs a boost to ‘get on with your life’. Mr. Jobs is speaking to graduates at the 2005 Stanford University Commencement program.
