Leadership is one of the key competencies for any manager. When things go well, being a leader is great privilege – but when the chips are down or when things don’t go as planned, that’s often when leadership is really put to the test.
Last week, RI Little League Coach David Belisle had to help the kids from Rhode Island’s Cumberland American Little League cope with being eliminated after a bitter loss in the Little League World Series. The speech he gave to his team is a great lesson in leadership.
At Forbes, David Cook analyzes why the speech was so powerful and offers tips for how you could give your team a similar speech.
The video of the kids coping with loss reminded us of another great team of kids that we featured here a few years ago – we think they are worth revisiting for the inspirational way they deal with loss: It’s the heartwarming and sweet story of a remarkable group of kids who offer tremendous lessons in teamwork, sportsmanship, and the truly important things in life. That’s the kind of team we should all want to be part of — true winners, every one of them!
