Being Remarkable

I play to win, whether during practice or a real game. And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.
Michael Jordan

The basketball universe and the rest of the world witnessed history when Michael Jordan joined the greatest players in the game in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

In his case, it never was a question of “if” he'd get in but more about “when”.

Jordan truly was a special player and considered by many to be one the greatest to ever step on the basketball court.

But the question is: What made him so remarkable?

Certainly talent and skill had a lot to do with it but he also possessed an intangible drive to succeed that separated him from his competitors.

As my friend, Don Yaeger puts it, "he had a deep hatred of losing".

This was the same drive that pushed him to become a better player after being cut from his high school basketball team for being "too short."

Remarkable Leadership

While not everyone can be Like Mike in the context of leadership, we all have the capacity to be remarkable leaders.

The key is being open and committed to being a continual learner.

Kevin Eikenberry is the Chief Potential Officer of The Kevin Eikenberry Group and joins me on the next episode of HCL Radio to discuss what Remarkable Leadership is and the importance of being open to learn new things.

Kevin said, "Leadership is a complex enough thing that there's always something we can be learning and getting better at."

Join us as Kevin explains how you can achieve remarkable results and reach your potential.
