Rules for Leading #4 - SAVI Performance - Issue #38

SAVI Performance
Are you going to let me die?!?!
I thought I knew the intensity needed to lead at the highest level.
This week that all changed.
Don’t let me die! That phrase keeps rattling around in my head as I think back on the time I got to spend around a Power 5 coach recently.
Here’s the story…
The team was underachieving and on the worst losing streak they’ve had in the past three years. The coach gathered his five toughest players in an emergency meeting.
“We’re dying.” He said.
“Are you going to let me die?” He implored.
“I won’t let you die!” He promised.
This group from within the team was not the most talented, not the best leaders, not the starters, but the five he believed in. He believed that if he was gonna die, they were ones who could save him.
He asked them, “What do I need to change as a coach for you to believe in me?”
He told them, “I need you to be all in and fight for us every day in order to trust you with my life.”
He then found them fighting for each other on a whole new level. Through that fire, they grew their belief in the MISSION and turned the season around.
Do you have your team’s belief? Or are they making a run on the bank?
The only reason people accept US dollar bills is a belief in their value. That’s it - the entire global economy trades in US dollars because of belief that it will be accepted in exchange for goods and services. This faith is all that runs our economy.
Your team’s will functions in the same way. As long as there’s belief, you can use that to purchase nearly anything. But, when that belief is shaken, your time in leadership is coming to an end.
I hope this is a moment things change for you.

#4 - Believe in Believe
If you haven’t yet watched Ted Lasso, stop reading this and start now.
Not really, finish reading…then go watch it :)
Energy and belief are the sign of a well led team.
When I walk in to evaluate your practice, in the first three minutes I know if you have a chance to win a championship.
I can feel if the team believes. So can you.
If you don’t have it, nothing else matters.
If you do have it, nothing else matters.
Do you believe in believe?
Have you created an environment where you’re not wasting your time?
  1. Does your team believe in you?
  2. Does your team believe in themselves?
  3. Does your team believe in the mission?
