The New Way to Win Super
The Harbaugh brothers are
part of a surprising vanguard of elite NFL coaches
who hardly resemble the screaming field generals of the past, ....
Instead, this generation's
21st-century grid-iron leader is defined
- not by yelling at players
but by listening to them;
- not by wielding authority over players, but by flexing power through
- and not by creating separate rules of engagement for the field, but by
treating pro football as inseparable from life.
DOV SEIDMAN in Time's
Business and Money
Dov's career has focused on how companies and their people can operate in
both principled and profitable ways.
What You should know about me
and my relation to American Football is, that I can barely tell a touch
down from a field goal. Do not expect me to comment on the game. But yes, I
did watch the NFL Super Bowl XLVII.
I found it interesting
though, to read that both coaches of the 2013 Top Teams are applying 'new'
leadership principles in their work.
What's note-worthy about
Maybe nothing. As business
leaders we all know all of them.
On our road to win our Super
Bowl, let's take a minute to reflect on if and how we apply these
principles in our daily leadership.
Ground our work in shared
values, guided by principles
John Harbaugh has described the
keys to his success as "having a shared ownership of everything
we do. It's never been 'my way or the highway' here. But the principles,
they are rock solid. Like we say to our team, principles are written in
stone, methods are not. We will not back down from our principles."
Treat work as inseparable from life
Our work and personal lives are no longer different spheres
governed by different rules. That's why Jim Harbaugh sits down with
his players and coaches at lunches to discuss family and other parts of
their lives off the field.
Abolish one-way conversations
Whether we're talking to
people or texting, we need to listen. Tom Coughlin regularly huddles
up with an 11-player "leadership council" to gauge teammates'
needs and concerns.
Inspire others to
aspire to significance
Instead of trying to extract
or coerce results out of others, successful leaders connect with what is
most valuable in others, catalyzing peak performance in a principled and
You may remember this apple
in my last newsletter, as the symbol for opportunities.
'Ground our work in shared
values with guided principles' is one of these apples for Alrol's Leader
Team; an opportunity.
Since November 2012, we
have been working with our entire Team (production and back office) on
the Leadership principles which Dov lists in his article.
Because we feel that shared
and lived values are the foundation to straighten and widen Alrol's road
to win the Super Bowl.
'They (our Team Members)
will never get it!' said somebody when I was talking about what we are
doing. - Wrong!
It is amazing to see, how people change significantly and how they
take ownership for the success of their Team, their company!
