In my last post I shared a few lessons I learned from the movie “Coach Carter.” I’d like to share now why I said that Leadership is Dangerous.
He did not. To make a long story short, this ended up costing him his job. Well, sort of. You need to see the movie.
But there’s the point: true leadership is dangerous.
Everybody hated him for sticking to his guns. And it was the right thing to do! But, yet, everyone else was blinded by other issues. They thought it was more important for the kids to play their game, than for them to learn a lesson about sticking to your commitments.
I guess the question is, then, “how do you lead well and survive to tell the story?”
