How do you find your job in the universe - something that needs doing, that you know something about and that probably won’t happen unless you take responsibility for it?
🚀 🚀 🚀 I finally got round to reading the brilliant “𝑳𝒆𝒈𝒂𝒄𝒚” by James Kerr recently on holiday.
💡 💯 🎯 A must for anyone interested in 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒑, 𝒄𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆 and, of course, 𝒓𝒖𝒈𝒃𝒚. Some deep and meaningful insights on the All Blacks that are relevant to anyone who is 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒃𝒖𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒉𝒊𝒈𝒉 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒆𝒂𝒎𝒔.
I love the 15 lessons in leadership:
★ 1. 𝑺𝒘𝒆𝒆𝒑 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒉𝒆𝒅𝒔 - never be too big to do the small things that need to be done.
★ 2. 𝑮𝒐 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑮𝒂𝒑 - when you’re on top of your game, change your game.
★ 3. 𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒚 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑷𝒖𝒓𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒆 - ask Why?

★ 7. 𝑬𝒎𝒃𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒆𝒙𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔 - aim for the highest clouds.

★ 9. 𝑲𝒆𝒆𝒑 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒍𝒖𝒆 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒅 - control your attention.
★ 10. 𝑲𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒕𝒉𝒚𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇 - keep it real.
★ 11. 𝑪𝒉𝒂𝒎𝒑𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔 𝒅𝒐 𝒆𝒙𝒕𝒓𝒂 - find something you would die for and give your life to it.
★ 12. 𝑰𝒏𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒖𝒂𝒈𝒆 - sing your world into existence.
★ 13. 𝑹𝒊𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒍𝒊𝒔𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝑨𝒄𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒍𝒊𝒔𝒆 - create a culture.
