Book 19 - Shout out to Dan McGovern who recommended this book. I’m a huge football fan, however despite the fact that Urban Meyer is a football coach this is a great read (or listen) about strong leadership.
Here’s a few of my takeaways:
R factor- we can’t control things that happen in life. Your response you can. Urban calls it the “R Factor.”
E+R=O - Event + Response = Outcome
Here’s the “R Factor” steps he walks through:
R1 - press pause, think before responding takes practice
R2- get your mind right
R3- step up
R4 - adjust and adapt
Here are some ideas or thoughts that also stuck out to me:
Teams or business have a culture by design or default.
Leadership isn’t a difference maker it is THE difference maker.
Culture is what leads no one is watching
You don’t get the culture you want, you get the culture you build.
People don’t see your intentions they see your actions.
Leadership, it’s not about you, it’s about making other people better.
Live, listen and learn.
If it isn’t happening in you, it can’t happen through you.
Awesome book! Thanks again Dan for the recommendation!
