Motivational Monday, May 18, 2020


Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/18/20) #Jordan Part 4 We are finishing our theme on Jordan and “The Last Dance,” a documentary about Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls championship run. When asked if he was too intense and demanding with his teammates, Jordan said, "I pulled people along when they didn't want to be pulled, I challenged people when they didn't want to be challenged. I earned that right!” Was Jordan perceived as a tough leader at times? Yes. Did he possibly lose out on some friendships because of his competitive leadership? Yes, probably. Did he have the respect of those on his team? Yes. He mentions, “I would not ask them to do something I was not willing to do myself.” I think if you are going to be demanding, this is a crucial part. You have to be willing to put yourself through the same demands that you are asking of others. To be great takes extreme grit, toughness, and most importantly, sacrifice. Are you paying the price to win? You need to do that first before you start making leadership demands! Have a great Monday and week.
