You’re not a general or an NFL coach. And your team isn’t a platoon of GI’s or millionaire football players. They’re people. They’re individuals with hopes and dreams of their own.
What’s more, being a leader of people is NOT a solo gig. It’s not about being the quarterback and throwing the “Hail Mary” pass to win the game, nor does it look like a rerun of your favorite episode of Gunsmoke or Tonto and the Lone Ranger.
Leading People demands more than you, alone, can deliver. It actually requires that you get over yourself, and into someone else’s world. It demands a working mastery of what makes people tick.
