Twenty years ago I asked Jerry Yeagley, who is the most succcessful NCAA Division I soccer coach in history, what he looks for when recruiting a high school soccer player. He told me he looks for the kid who made an impact on the game. He looks to answer this question: when the game is over, who had the greatest impact on the overall game?
As a business leader, how will you impact the performance of your organization today? Will you give someone else the freedom to make a decision and stay out of his or her way? Will you ask an insightful question for other people to consider? Will you share a story to make a point? Will you point out the strengths you see in other people? Will you make a tough decision that you feel needs to be made? Will you be honest with other people in a professional and respectful manner?
What will be the impact you make today to improve the organization?
