Transcript of Young Leaders: Cutting the Strings That Suppress Development

Young Leaders: Cutting the Strings That Suppress Development
Framework of Presentation

1. Pursuit of elite performance in golf, business and life
a. Meet early success, then flat tire, break down, fail
b. Nothing made sense, hype said yes, reality said no
2. Lead to 1000’s of hours of research asking the question why? Searching for ultimate truth, some learned, some reverse engineered, and some trial and error.
3. Interviewed top coaches, influencers and athletes.
4. Worked with over 10000 athletes over the last 14 years.
5. 3 children of my own who played youth, high school, and hopefully, next year, college sports.

The Essense of Life and Sport
Michael Johnson, Olympic Gold Medalist, in
Slaying the Dragon

"Life and sport is about “how to identify what you really want and how to get there; to set goals based upon realism and confidence, to work with discipline and resolve: to learn from the requisite failures and the too-early successes; to achieve a clarity of focus and a sense of purpose: to stick to your plan; deal with pressure, thrive on it, and make it your own; to carve away the distractions that slow us all down; and perhaps most important, to keep going after you lose the biggest race of your life. Because you will, I did several times."

Today’s presentation is an overview of the subject, not a comprehensive study. I do not claim to have the perfect leadership model with young people, the 7 steps to achievement or do I feel I have all the right answers. What I do know is if we open our eyes to see the world in and outside the matrix with realism, we may attain this set of actions called leadership and the energy that comes from the “animated contest of life and sport.”
The Question?
Pursuit or Suppression?
String #3
String #2
Lack of understanding of themselves: Drama is life, rather than spending time preparing yourself for success,

Life scripts and Drama Triangle: Eric Berne, father of transactional analysis, mentioned that fairy tales are the life scripts that most people are trying to match with the drama triangle.

What do young people spend the most time doing outside of school and sports, technology, and tv. Reality tv shows, cops and robbers, mtv, our fairy tales, Top Gun, Rambo, Braveheart, Keeping Up With Kardashians

Focus on Task
Michael Johnson, Olympic Gold Medalist, in
Slaying the Dragon
"There is a saying among some athletes that after you have stared long enough into the dragon’s eyes, there is nothing left to do but slay the dragon. For each of us, that dragon is the thing closest to the center of our lives. It is our core, our ambition, and our joy. "

The power of the environment on the mind and body.

What if your athletes could increase their IQ by 8-10 points, could focus on one task longer, eliminate brain fog and the need for caffeine, improve their ability transport oxygen within the body , therefore improving endurance, boosting their immune system and lower time of recovery. All within a short period of time, say a season, with scientifically proven information.

Could young people become better leaders?

1. No genetically modified organisms
2. Organic, real food
3. Diversity
4. Eliminate synthetic food like aspartame in chewing gum

1. Sparkling Water
2. Baking Soda Water
3. Real Milk
4. Bentonite Clay
5. Non-fluoridated water and toothpaste

Educate your athletes early and often on new (old) ways that will set them up to better understand you, their teammates, and themselves, then watch them lead in their own time.
String #1
Only understand MY compartment, rather than understanding the whole picture. "ME FIRST" world
The Second Jungle Book
by Rudyard Kipling

Now this is the Law of The Jungle
As old and as true as the sky
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
But the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree tuck,
The Law runneth forward and back
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
