There is an old saying that says “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch” is a reality that we all understand. However, what about the leader or group of people who know they can compete at a higher level. Their confidence is matched with hard work, determination and pure belief. This factor we refer to as the “underdog” in the world of sports. These teams come out of nowhere and beat great teams at their own game.
Usually these groups have something in common; usually one individual has the determination to ignite others to become better at what they do. They infuse a new standard that is contagious. Others begin to share that vision and the early success only provides additional confidence. Then boom – they shock the competition with huge wins. These wins ignite a fan base that creates momentum.
My challenge – Are you igniting your team? If not, when?
