Great leaders unite a team together and elevate everyone further and faster than they could imagine. Great leaders push themselves to their limits inspiring others to do the same.
Leadership is not a single person and winning is never about a single person. Consider the NBA Finals, Game 5 in 1997 where Michael Jordan played with the flu.
- It took years of rigorous practice and many failures for Jordan to build his own capacity to play at that level through that level of fatigue.
- It took the Relentless approach of one of his many trainers; Tim Grover.
- It took his coach Phil Jackson bringing the team together through thousands of hours of deliberate practice.
- It took the support of the whole team - players, coaches, support and leadership.
Build a culture of true teamwork then build the talent through deliberate practice and you will build an unstoppable contractor.
