Powerful Lessons in Leadership from Nick Foles & The Super Bowl
The title says it all and this is only ONE of my favorite sections in this article:
Nowadays, too many people are focused on "becoming a leader." They play office politics in an attempt to win a management position. They hire PR firms or focus on marketing and "branding" to establish a name for themselves, so others will think they're important and hear what they have to say.
But as Foles so beautifully demonstrated over the past several weeks, true leadership isn't about position or trying to get others to follow you.
Rather, true leadership is about action: It's putting your head down, going to work, and trying to lift up those around you. That's what inspires others to follow because they want to, not because they have to.
