CEO Today - May 2022

The popular TV show Ted Lasso depicts a haplessly optimistic American college football coach as he is hired to take over an English football (soccer) team. He needs to win over a team, fans, and a national audience. And he has no choice but to do it in his inimitable folksy and whimsical manner. But between the laughs, there is wisdom in Lasso’s philosophies. I think that you might be so sure that you’re one in a million, that sometimes you forget that out there, you’re just one in 11. In other words, good teammates can put ego to one side and focus on achieving success as a collective. This applies to almost anyone. But it especially applies to business leaders.
