Applying Your Leadership Style

When you have sports coaching, whether that be for martial arts or tennis etc, often the coach will look at your technique and say “you’re doing it all wrong!”. And then you find that each coach has their own theory on how it should be done, even claiming other coaches don’t know what they’re talking about. But when you look at all these different theories and techniques, and put them into practice, at that moment where it counts, whether it’s contact with your opponent, or with that tennis ball, they all generally put you in the same, correct position, ready to take your shot.

Leadership is like this. Whether you’re quiet and gentle, or you’re loud and angry. At the moment when it matters, no matter what your individual style is, you have to be in the correct position in terms of vision and trust, ready to lead your team to success.
