De camino al Super Bowl, Tom Brady estaba dando una clase magistral de liderazgo

d

Tom Brady va al Super Bowl por décima vez después de la victoria de su equipo el domingo, con mucho la mayor cantidad de apariciones en el Super Bowl de cualquier jugador en la historia.

Es bastante indiscutible que Brady es el mejor jugador de fútbol de todos los tiempos. (De ahí el título de mi libro electrónico gratuito, Tom Brady siempre gana: 10 lecciones de éxito de The Goatque puede descargar aquí.)

El rendimiento de campo del domingo fue mixto: una gran primera mitad seguida de una segunda mitad menos que sobresaliente. Pero lo que sucedió después del juego dio un breve vistazo de por qué tiene tanto éxito.

Hablo de su entrevista posterior al partido en el campo y cómo la terminó.

A los 43 años, el jugador activo más viejo en una lista de la NFL y su primer año en Tampa Bay después de dos décadas y seis victorias en el Super Bowl con los New England Patriots, los medios de comunicación querían hablar con Brady.

Por supuesto, fue el centro de algunos comentarios. Pero luego fue el propio Brady quien terminó la entrevista con siete breves palabras: «¡Traigamos a otras personas aquí!»

Se refería a sus compañeros de equipo, les dio a algunos de ellos un momento en el centro de atención y se dio cuenta de que muy pocas personas tienen la oportunidad de alcanzar la cima de su deporte, y mucho menos hacerlo una y otra vez como lo ha hecho Brady.

Mira, si eres un verdadero fanático del fútbol, ​​anoche hubo muchas historias a tener en cuenta. Y hay muchos jugadores a los que hay que prestar atención en los Tampa Bay Buccaneers de Brady.

Pero si se encuentra entre la gran mayoría de estadounidenses, y personas de todo el mundo, para quienes el fútbol es un interés pasajero en el mejor de los casos, entonces Brady es probablemente el único jugador que podría haber conocido en el juego.

Puede que conozcas a Aaron Rodgers, el mariscal de campo de Green Bay, pero solo tiene un anillo de Super Bowl para luchar contra los nueve viajes de Brady, seis anillos y todo lo que sucede dos semanas después de ayer.

Y, sin embargo, Brady sabe mejor que nadie que ningún jugador, sin importar lo bueno que sea, puede ganar un partido de fútbol solo, sin importar, llegar al Super Bowl.

Más tarde amplió en otra entrevista cuando se le preguntó cuáles eran las claves del juego.

«Todos se han enfrentado al desafío», dijo Brady en una entrevista en video. «El fútbol es el deporte de equipo por excelencia y necesita a todos. Todos juegan un papel. Estoy muy orgulloso de todo este equipo y tengo la suerte de ser parte de él».

No lo pongas demasiado grueso, pero: Equipo, equipo, equipo, equipo, equipo.

Así que aquí es donde quiero dar un paso atrás y aprender la lección para los líderes.

Está claro, pero también es muy divertido de explorar. Porque espero que hayas tenido mucho éxito. Espero que haya tenido la misma experiencia en cada campo en el que trabaja cuando Brady fue llamado a la línea de 50 yardas para ofrecer perspectiva y elogiarse a sí mismo.

También espero que, como Brady, hayas tenido la presencia de ánimo para distraer la mayor cantidad de fama posible y, en cambio, insistir en que otros miembros de tu equipo también tengan la oportunidad.

Es más difícil de lo que parece a veces. Estoy seguro de que algunos líderes se muestran reacios a compartir el centro de atención debido a su inseguridad. Pero otros lo hacen porque les preocupa que parecerán poco sinceros o clichés.

La centésima vez que te levantas para celebrar victorias y alabar, puede parecer un poco roja. Usted ha estado aquí antes. Has dado un discurso similar antes.

Pero eso no significa que todos los que te rodean hayan tenido la experiencia. Para algunos de los miembros de su equipo, esta es la primera vez que bailan, quizás la única que obtienen.

Recuerdo una cita de shakespeare La tormenta::

Miranda: Oh mundo feliz / ¡Gente así no tiene eso!
Prospero: «Es nuevo para ti».

Miranda es una especie de vagabundo de esa broma en la obra, pero como líder, estás llamado a tener el respeto y el coraje para darle la vuelta: poner a todos los demás en el centro de atención y dejarlos disfrutar de la alegría y la adoración.

Puede que sea nuevo para ellos. Creo que la experiencia de Brady no solo es buena, sino que también destaca algunas otras razones.

Primero, porque necesita a su equipo, y elogiar sus logros lo inspirará un poco a contribuir la próxima vez.

Segundo, porque los hace sentir bien.

En tercer lugar, porque, como describimos anteriormente, tienen una experiencia diferente a la tuya y en realidad podría significar más para ellos.

Cuarto, porque su humildad y gracia al compartir el centro de atención lo hacen más afable.

Y finalmente, este es como el doble jiu-jitsu Liderazgo: porque ver que otros son llamados positivamente por sus contribuciones puede No Esta vez, haga mucho para ayudar a hacer más en el futuro.

Independientemente de por qué lo esté haciendo, funciona. Pero no solo confíe en mi palabra. Tómalo de la cabra.

I'm talking about his post-game interview on the field, and how he ended it. 

n

At age 43 -- oldest active player on a roster in the NFL, and in his first year with Tampa Bay after two decades and six Super Bowl victories with the New England Patriots -- it was Brady with whom the media wanted to talk.

n

He took center stage for a few comments, of course. But then, it was Brady himself who ended the interview with seven short words: "Let's bring some other people up here!" 

n

He meant his teammates, giving some of them a moment in the spotlight, and recognizing that very few people get the chance to reach the pinnacle of their sport, let alone to do it over and over as Brady has.

n

Honestly, that short sentence seemed to win over even NFL devotees who don't like Brady personally.

n

n

Look, if you're a true football fan, there were a lot of storylines to pay attention to last night. And there are lot of players on Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers to pay attention to.

n

But, if you're among the vast majority of Americans -- and people around the world -- for whom football is a passing interest at best, then it's likely Brady is the only player you might have known in the game.  

n

Maybe you'd know Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay quarterback, but he only has one Super Bowl ring, to go against Brady's nine trips, six rings, plus whatever happens two weeks from yesterday.

n

And yet, Brady knows better than anyone else that no single player, no matter how good he or she is, can win a football game alone -- never mind, make it to the Super Bowl.

n

He expanded in another interview later, when asked what the keys to the game had been.

n

"Everyone stepped up to the challenge," Brady said in a video interview. "Football is the ultimate team sport, and it takes everybody. Everybody plays a role. And I'm just so proud of this whole team and blessed to be a part of it."

n

Not to lay it on too thick, but: team, team, team, team, team.

n

So, this is the point at which I want to step back and draw the lesson for business leaders.

n

It's a clear one, but it's also a lot of fun to explore. Because I hope you've had a lot of successes. I hope you've had the equivalent experience, in whatever field you're in, of Brady being called to the 50-yard-line to offer perspective and bask in praise.

n

I also hope you've had the presence of mind, as Brady did, to deflect as much of the glory as you can, and instead insist that others on your team get the chance as well. 

n

It's harder than it seems sometimes. I'm sure some leaders hesitate to share the limelight because of their insecurity. But, others do it because they worry about seeming insincere or cliched. 

n

The 100th time you're standing up to celebrate wins and offer kudos, it can seem a bit rote. You've been here before. You've made a similar speech before.

n

But that doesn't mean everyone else around you has had the experience. For some of your team members, this is their first time at the dance, maybe the only one they'll get.

n

I'm reminded of a quote from Shakespeare's The Tempest:

n

Miranda: "O brave new world / That has such people in't!"
Prospero: "'Tis new to thee."

n

Miranda is sort of the butt of that joke in the play, but as a leader, you're called to have the respect and courage to turn it around: Put the spotlight on everyone else, and let them bask in the joy and adulation.

n

'Tis new to them, perhaps. Besides just being a good thing to do, I think Brady's experience highlights a few other reasons.

n

First, because you need your team--and praising their accomplishments will inspire them a bit to contribute next time.

n

Second, because it makes them feel good.

n

Third, because as we've described above, they're having a different experience than you are, and it might actually mean more to them.

n

Fourth, because your humility and grace in sharing the spotlight makes you more likable.

n

And finally--this one is like, double Jiujitsu leadership --because watching others get called out positively for their contributions can motivate those who didn't contribute that much this time to do more later.

n

Regardless of why you do it, it works. But, don't just take my word for it. Take it from the GOAT.
