Hey Team...

This morning, I wanted to talk about a word that many of you have come across in your journey: LEADERSHIP.

You see, this is a word that is often used and very often tossed around in any discussion surrounding "issues."

But for me, I wanted to let you see the word a little different... by adding "of the" in between the R and the S.


Think about that for a minute.

Look at that play on the word.

When it is written like this, the job description is never forgotten.

Now, many of you run companies, sports teams, classrooms, departments, police forces, and families that read this each day...

So, remember... you are the Leader-Of The-Ship....

What does that mean to you?

1. You are responsible for the direction the ship is headed...

2. You are responsible for the mechanics of the ship (is it safe, is it working)..

3. You are responsible for fueling the ship (making sure it has the energy to travel long distances)...

4. You are responsible for making sure all of your passengers are safe...

5. You are responsible for making sure each passenger has a great experience..

6. You are responsible for checking the radar so you can navigate storms and rough waters (together, with your crew)..

7. You are responsible for having a crew that is talented, skilled, equipped, and has the ability to anticipate the captains needs...

8. You must make sure the the ship gets maintained...

9. You must make sure the ship ends up in the right port...

10. You must take care of the ship, the passengers, the crew, those who work the dock... everyone.

Got it?

So, don't just look at the word leadership as another buzzword.. or as the central goal of another guru book....

Look at it from the standpoint of The LEADER- OF THE-SHIP...

When you do that... everything good begins to happen...

Let's go.

Your Coach,
