Leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less. Leadership is not something you can test; leadership happens when you are tested. The missing ingredient for most leadership development programs is the practicing of overcoming real adversity. Without the experience of making mistakes, leadership lessons are often forgotten before they are ever put to use. I teach the power of intentional communication (verbal, physical and digital), being intentional about increasing a person's ability to influence others, and the three levels of leadership (Do, Say, Be) one must go through to become a person of influence.
Character is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. In other words, it is the "ethos" of a person. In my work with hundreds of teams and thousands of athletes, a significant pattern has emerged, that of the importance of character to go alongside talent. Whether it is defining respect for young men or empowering young women to be their best self, lessons on character are crucial to the development of the person.
Attention is the currency of performance. Athlete's need to be able to access their physical skills at all times. Skills such as goal setting, energy management, imagery, and mindfulness help maintain an athlete's composure, especially when under pressure.
