WOLFPACK Rule #3: Lead From the Bench by Abby Wambach - 2019-04-17

Abby Wambach, text's publication from 2019-04-17 17:38:12 :
Imagine this: You’ve scored more international goals in your sport than any human being on the planet. You’ve co-captained and led Team USA to victory after victory for the past decade. And you and your coach sit down and decide together that you won’t be a starter for the remainder of your final World Cup. Instead, you’ll come off the bench.

That was hard. But it taught me the most important lesson of leadership -- Rule #3 of WOLFPACK: Lead from the bench.

We won the World Cup that year. The pride I feel about how I handled that tournament rivals the pride I have about scoring any big goal.

You’ll feel benched sometimes, too. You’ll find yourself taken off the project, passed over for the promotion, falling sick, losing the election, sidelined by the kid who doesn’t seem to need you anymore. You might find yourself holding a baby instead of a briefcase and fearing that your colleagues are “getting ahead” and leaving you behind.

You are allowed to be disappointed when it feels like life’s benched you. What you aren’t allowed to do is miss your opportunity to lead from the bench.

If you’re not a leader on the bench, don’t call yourself a leader on the field.

You’re either a leader everywhere or nowhere.

And, by the way, the fiercest leaders I’ve ever seen have been parents. Parenting is no bench—it just might be the big game.

Marie Forleo —I loved this conversation. I’m so grateful for you and all of the powerful conversations you lead. Check out our talk at https://www.marieforleo.com/2019/04/abby-wambach-wolfpack/
