I love this recent viral video of Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. And I can’t help thinking of what his style of leadership could do to empower us to be all-stars.
Engineers often talk about the many ways failure contributes to success, but leaders have to create the environment that makes failing smart possible.
Does your team’s culture support taking risks – like attempting a 60-foot shot? Does it value outcomes – like a strong plus/minus – and learning from the shots you missed? As a leader, are you promoting courage and praising confidence?
How are you coaching your team?
