I heard a great speech this week from Bob Ortegel, a long time Dallas Mavericks color man and former college basketball coach.
Did you know that for 11 straight seasons the Dallas Mavericks missed the playoffs? Then a young hot shot business guy named Mark Cuban bought the team and for the past 12 seasons they have made the playoffs every year. Including two trips to the finals and a World Championship.
Mr. Ortegel’s observations of Mark Cuban, “He brought, ENERGY, ENTHUSIASM, PASSION, PRIDE, A STRONG WORK ETHIC, and HOPE. The man never sleeps.”
Everyone wants ‘World Champion’ results, but few are really willing to put in the work. Leadership is HARD WORK, that is why there is no traffic jam on the XTRA MILE.
“A little sleep, a little rest, folding your arms and taking a nap. These things will make you poor very quickly.” Proverbs 24
Great Leadership and Winning go hand in hand. Can you lead like that in your business? We can help.
