  • They all share one important characteristic…..an unbelievable amount of commitment to their cause.
  • These people put in the time and energy necessary to advance their cause and achieve their missions.
  • Some literally gave their lives for the cause.
  • Their TOTAL commitment attracted others who wanted to follow them.
  • Similarly, to be an effective leader you must be committed---to give your time, energy, and passion to help your team pursue its goals.
vision
VISION
  • Great leaders know exactly what they want to achieve.
  • They see what is possible for their teams and make it their mission to attain it…region title, state championship, turning around a losing program, etc.
  • Great leaders determine a mission, or long term goal that they are passionate about achieving.
  • “To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn’t know where he’s going.” Joe Namath
assignment
Assignment
  • What specifically is your team’s long-term goal for this season (or your next season)?
  • Is the team’s goal challenging enough to truly inspire you and your team?
  • How realistic is your goal given the time frame and people you have?
make the commitment
MAKE THE COMMITMENT
  • If you want to be a leader, you must fully commit yourself.Your goal must be one of the biggest priorities in your life.
  • You must be so inspired by the goal that you fully commit yourself to making it a reality.
  • Leadership is an investment of time, energy and yourself to make your dreams and those of your teammates and coaches come true.
  • You must be willing to ethically do whatever it takes to make it happen. You must be willing to endure all of the obstacles, challenges, and setbacks that will occur on the way.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm6cWAz-g_o (Tim Tebow)
assignment1
ASSIGNMENT

  • What are you willing to sacrifice to reach your goal?
  • You can’t lead others to a place that you don’t want to go yourself.
commitment continuum
Commitment Continuum
  • Resistant-Reluctant-Existent

Resistant

Reluctant

  • Reluctant people are not YET willing to buy into the common goal.
  • Hesitant to do what is asked of them and only give half effort and enthusiasm.
  • Haven’t bought in to the belief that the team can be successful.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ho0E4ftRrc (Hoosiers)
  • Resistant people resist being led.
  • Have their own view and ideas.
  • Do not agree with the team’s rules and standards and openly oppose them.
  • Complain about coaches, teammates, workouts, conditioning, etc.
  • Have not bought into the team’s common goal and intentionally do their own thing.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP7Sjgm_8DI (Hoosiers)
commitment continuum1
Commitment Continuum
  • Compliant-Committed-Compelled

Existent

Compliant

  • Compliants will do whatever they are told by their coaches and team leaders.
  • They do what is expected, but they lack the self-motivation to do any extra.
  • They are frustrating because the leaders have to ALWAYS tell them what to do and supply them with motivation.
  • Existent people are there in body but not mind and spirit.
  • They show up but give little effort and don’t invest much into the program.
  • Don’t care about the team goals.
  • Go through the motions in practice and play with little energy or enthusiasm (empty corpse syndrome).
  • Why is this person on the team? They need to quit!

Commitment Continuum
  • Compliant-Committed-Compelled

Committed

Compelled (only 5%)

  • Compelled people find a way to “get it done” no matter the obstacles, adversities, or distractions that might stand in their way.
  • They prepare, train, and compete at the highest level.
  • They NEVER go through the motions or skip workouts. They take care of their bodies and follow ALL of the team rules.
  • Take advantage of every opportunity to get better.
  • They have high expectations and they hold themselves AND their teammates to a higher standard.
  • Committed people willingly go the extra mile in order to reach their goals.
  • Self-motivated=They don’t need someone else to tell them what to do OR watch over their shoulder to make sure they are doing it.
  • They take the initiative to do what is necessary to get the job done.

Commitment Continuum

Obsessed

Assignment

6. In which category would you presently rate yourself? Why?

7. Where do you think your teammates would rate you? Why?

8. Where do you think your coach would rate you? Why?

9. Where do you want to be? How will you get there?

  • Obsessed people get so consumed with achieving goals that they lose their perspective.
  • No balance in their lives.
  • Pursue goals at all costs even if it means being unethical (Cheating, etc)
  • They are highly committed but they lack the perspective and the people skills to be respected leaders.
  • There is a fine line between being compelled and obsessed.
commitment continuum4
Commitment Continuum
  • It’s important to know where on the commitment continuum your coaches and teammates rate you. If they haven’t rated you at least at the committed level, you will have a hard time gaining their respect.
  • Still, you get to choose what level you would like to commit yourself.
  • PROBLEM: Resistants are team leaders too---negative team leaders. They persuade others to resist doing what’s expected or doing things the right way.
  • Resistants are just as influential on a team as positive leaders…maybe even more influential.
work hard
WORK HARD
  • Hard work is a by-product of commitment. When you commit yourself to achieving a specific goal, you realize you will need to put in a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to turn your dreams into a reality.
  • Because you are committed, you won’t need someone else to tell you what to do. You are SELF-MOTIVATED to do the work.
  • Commitment is not sacrifice…it’s a long term investment.
  • Most of your teammates will admire your commitment and will be motivated to follow your lead. However, not all of your teammates will raise their commitment level.
  • Some of your teammates, those in the Compliant level and below will attempt to sabotage your commitment efforts by making fun of you or trying to embarrass you.
hard work
Hard Work
  • “work hard. Don’t be the last to arrive or the first to leave. Don’t skip sessions in the weight room. One good rule for a leader is not to expect anything from your teammates that you wouldn’t do yourself.” Joe Montana
  • “The second I let down, particularly if I’m perceived as the leader of my team or my company, I give others an opening to let down as well. Why not? If the person out front takes a day off or doesn’t play hard, why should anyone else?” Michael Jordan
play with passion and enthusiasm
PLAY WITH PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM
  • Great leaders also display tremendous passion and enthusiasm. As a leader by Example, it will be your job to bring your energy to the team.
  • Let your love for the sport be displayed and be contagious with your teammates.
  • Come to practice with a smile on your face and ready to work hard. Enjoy the challenges that practices offer and make them fun for yourself, your teammates, and your coaches. Practice is work but you can make it fun by challenging yourself and your teammates to have fun with it. (Don’t mistake fun for goofing off)
  • When the energy level is down on your team, it will be up to you to get it cranked back up again.
  • Be sure your enthusiasm is contagious (Remember: Your lack of enthusiasm is also contagious).
competitiveness instill your will
COMPETITIVENESS---INSTILL YOUR WILL
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2os-hfXSUlA (1997 NBA Final Game 5 “Food Poisoning”)
  • Jordan put the Bulls on his back and led his team to victory by scoring 38 points in 44 minutes, including the game winning three pointer in the closing seconds.
  • “I’ve never seen Michael as sick as he was, to the point where I didn’t think he was going to be able to put his uniform on. The effort he came out and showed us was incredible. He’s not only the greatest player ever, but he’s the greatest leader ever.” Scottie Pippen, Jordan’s teammate
competitiveness instill your will1
COMPETITIVENESS---INSTILL YOUR WILL
  • You will need to have a strong competitive will as a leader.
  • Why would you invest so much of yourself and put in all the work if winning wasn’t important to you?
  • Losing is not an option for most leaders. They will their team to victory.
  • “Refuse to lose” mentality.
  • “Lead, follow, or get out of the way” attitude.
  • It’s your job to instill your will in your teammates. You must make every effort to get your teammates on board, but you also must be willing to do it alone if necessary from time to time.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Fttt3fFTxk (Hoosiers: 1954 State Championship Game) “I’ll make it!”
competitiveness instill your will2
COMPETITIVENESS---INSTILL YOUR WILL
  • “On most clubs, the leaders are the veteran guys. The young guys are too busy worrying about their stats, establishing their careers, playing for that next big contract. They have priorities other than winning. You want your leaders to be someone who’s all about winning.”

Jeff Bagwell, Houston Astros

  • “You can take the best team and the worst team and line them up and you would find very little physical difference. You would find an emotional difference. The winning team has dedication. It will have a core group of veteran players who set the standards. They will not accept defeat.”

Merlin Olson, Utah State and L.A. Rams
