Well you knew it was going to happen. I found a video that fits this weeks theme from TED. This is video fits like a glove. We are talking about core values.
James Franklin talks about the hows and the whys he finds his job to make sure that his players and staff understand that they have a set of core values they are to uphold.
His Values have a reason to build up the culture that he has in his football program. Coach Franklin
As you can see the values that he works hard to instill in his player are
- Have a Positive Attitude – The attitude you bring to the group adds to the group is you have a negative attitude you take the energy from the group. So he requires that his people have a positive attitude. He doesn’t allow for a rotten apple to ruin his bunch.
- Work Ethic – You have to work so work hard and have a good work ethic. If you don’t then don’t expect much in return. You get out of life what you put into it. Work hard and you will reap the benefits
- Compete – Competition is important for people to get their best. These days it can appear that many people don’t wan to work that hard to complete. IF they do they will win every time. Anytime you have the ability to compete in something do it.
- Sacrifice – CCoach Franklin calls this sacrifice while I believe it is
better calledself-discipline. Why have one cookie now when you can have a whole pack later? Exercise even when you dontwant to and you will be that much further.
So take the time to watch the video and start thinking of what your core values are. You don’t need many just choose 4 or 5 values. Start living by those core values.
