Leadership Lessons

This mornings topic is one that I recently stumbled across in Success, a financial publication, and found to be of particular interest. The author, former Celtics great Larry Bird, has transitioned his career from basketball superstar to trainer/motivational speaker. In this particular article, Bird highlights the leadership lessons he has come to embrace from his experiences both on and off the court. Below are a couple of the lessons that I thought you would appreciate and could incorporate into your career.
  • If you love what you're doing, you'll love your job
  • Hide your weaknesses and play to your strengths
  • Make choices that are best for the team/company
  • Bottom Line: Provide what your customers (fans) want

To learn more about these lessons or to read Larry Bird's article in full, please see Success magazine's March/April 2007 edition. As always, please leave comments as to what you like/dislike; or let me know topics you would like to see discussed.
