Lou Holtz on the Secret to Great Leadership

On Sacrifice:

“When you set goals and dreams, you’ve got to answer some questions honestly. What sacrifices am I willing to make to do that? What skills and talents do I have to acquire in order to do that? Who do I have to work with in order to get that done? And whoever you have to work with, they have to understand how they’re going to benefit when you reach your goal.

“Identify the problems you have to overcome to get there. Leadership is being able to solve problems, but also anticipate problems. Eliminate mistakes before they happen. Your job is to make people the very best they can be. And that is when you get them out of their comfort zone. Because most people don’t know how good they can be.”

Do any of these points resonate with challenges you’re facing today
