Leadership

This is how you do it. The first step is to understand that your success is not all about you and it never will be.
Lynch did everything right all day, starting with bringing his much less famous backup backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington out on his flanks when he got the loudest ovation in years during pregame introductions. That decision was pure Lynch. When he told Richard and Washington he wanted them to take the field on either side of him, Richard said: “I was like, ‘They cool with this?’ Lynch said, ‘It doesn’t matter what they say. You boys are coming out with me.’ That just got me pumped from the get-go.”

Life Lessons from the (((Negro Felon League))). Precious.

If that is Marshawn Lynch I think he has shown the media all the respect they deserve.

Running a good company is not about Command & Control.

It is about Leadership followed by Moderation/Appreciation

A "Leader" inspires, and is not a Napoleon "Commander" for the most part. He inspires toward an important "center of gravity," which can change with time.

Monitoring means to mainly observe what is going on, and again, this is not micromanaging.

Appreciation, of course, means to value worth, clear perception, and etc., and it can also mean to advise , warn or admonish (the last goes with the monitoring side).

It's simple, VD, who believes in Leadership, observed, then warned Torba of a rush huge problems coming Gab's way. He did that as a friend. Torba, a Command and Control believer, took this as a willful desire to tell him, how he has to run his company, so from a C&C perspective, VD was tying to take over C&C of Gab. Amusing, Clausewitz, WWI attrition warfare was started by Torba.

As someone who watched him come out of Cal as a very immature individual, go through the entirely predictable messes that followed, getting traded and finally finding success and contentment - It is nice to see Lynch showing with actions, not just words, what he has learned along the way.

Lynch probably holds "racist" views and I don't care.

Blogger Daniel Paul Grech Pereira September 18, 2017 10:09 AM  

This is a leadership move that comes straight out of the army sergeant's field experience manual.

Didn't see this, but was part of the reason that he got the loudest ovation BECAUSE he brought out his flankers and demonstrated leadership visibly?

Did you see him dancing on the Jumbotron?! It was hilarious. What's going to happen when the Raider go to Vegas? Prolly more gamblers found face down in piles of devil dandruff.

Bread and circus brigade.

Love that dude. He also did a pretty funny guest spot on Brooklyn 99 where he played a guy who could not stop talking.

"Beast Mode Leadership" would sell enough books just on title and photo cover / endorsement alone despite whatever pithy platitudes are interspersed amongst a handful of cool feelgood anecdotes it might also contain.

Marshawn is about building his team and his team only. He did same thing in Seattle...Nothing new.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
