Learning From Lamar Jackson

This is Lamar Jackson, 2nd-year quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. He is 22 years old and has overcome plenty of non-believers to accomplish what no one ever has previously in the NFL. Here is what is impressive to me about his leadership.

Any false leader can make a mistake and go to his teammates and say, “Hey, my bad.”

The true test of leadership is how the team responds when you admit fault. Witness what I mean in the video below:

No one expects you to be flawless in leadership, and the true test of the strength of the team you are building is how they respond when you do screw up. Because you will.

We all will.
