9 Powerful Leadership Lessons by Sports Legends

As my book is progressing (I’ll disclose and reveal more details soon) around more than a dozen individual and team sports with professional coaches and athletes, I could not resist sharing the following nine powerful sports legends’ lessons that I learned early on in life thanks in part to my exceptional father, brother and first mentors in my life. 1. Muhammed Ali: “ Friendship… is not something you learn in school.

Some changes we found to be unpleasant or uncomfortable while others were fun, exciting, and worthwhile. If you happen to be one that never experienced any change as of yet, I would love to have a word with you!

Transformations are complex, and they require leaders’ perspective as well as input from others in response to transformation to ensure it is not only successful but that it is indeed effective. That is where the high-performance impact comes in place! Why? Regardless of our performing duties, either as senior managers or executive leaders, we have to […]
