From John Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
Leaders find a way for the team to win.
Three components to achieve victory:
- Unity of vision
- Diversity of skills
- Leader that is dedicated to victory and to raising players to their potential
Long before Roger Smith and Steve DiChiaro joined the Liberty National team to lead us to victory, another great leader named Vince Lombardi forever changed the face of football with his ability to teach, motivate, and inspire. Lombardi took a mediocre team with a 1-10-1 record to an NFL title in only three years. He secured a total of five NFL titles in nine years, three of them consecutively. Lombardi led the Packers to the first two Super Bowl titles in 1966 and 1967. He was a phenomenon among the NFL!
What made this man so successful? Maxwell’s three components of victory tell the story. Lombardi’s vision was to win; he shared that vision with his players, and they embraced it as their own. Lombardi understood it takes diverse talent on the field to create wins. No matter how good the running back or the quarterback is, neither can credit victory solely due to his individual talent. Finally, Vince Lombardi was totally dedicated to winning, and he did whatever was humanly possible to help his players reach their highest potential.
Liberty National achieves greatness
Liberty National has the unity of vision. Liberty National has the diversity of skills. Liberty National has leaders dedicated to victory through helping each Agency Owner, Agency Director, Supervising Agent, and Agent achieve his or her potential. Based on Maxwell’s 15th law and Lombardi’s execution of it, Liberty National is primed for victory!
“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” –Vince Lombardi
