¿Quieres liderar la ‘Generación Z’? Tom Brady acaba de impartir una clase magistral sobre cómo hacerlo

d

Cuando los mariscales de campo Tom Brady y Drew Brees entren al campo en su juego de playoffs el domingo, tendrán temporadas de la NFL por valor de cuatro décadas entre ellos.

Eso es mucha experiencia, y eso es lo que describo en mi libro electrónico gratuito. Tom Brady siempre gana: 10 lecciones de éxito de The Goat. Pero por mucho que los fanáticos del fútbol americano hayan hablado sobre su edad y longevidad en la liga, recientemente noté algo sorprendente en el estilo de liderazgo de Brady.

Se trata de cómo lidera a jugadores que son mucho más jóvenes que él, incluso a jugadores que no forman parte de su equipo y son de una generación completamente diferente.

Preparemos el escenario. La semana pasada, los Tampa Bay Buccaneers de Brady derrotaron al equipo de fútbol de Washington, que estaba preparando su partido contra Brees y los New Orleans Saints este fin de semana.

Las historias de la semana pasada incluyeron al novato Chase Young, ala defensiva de Washington de 6 pies 5 pulgadas y 264 libras, y su intento de atrapar y vencer a Brady durante todo el juego.

En los días previos a esta competencia, Young Brady seguía llamando a los medios: «¡Tom Brady, ya voy!» fue citado. «¡Quiero a Tom! ¡Quiero a Tom!»

Hay tres cosas rápidas que debe saber sobre el juego, incluso si no podría preocuparse menos por la NFL.

Primero, Young es joven. Pure Gen Z, 21 años.

Brady, por otro lado, tiene 43 años; Exactamente en la demografía de la Generación X. De hecho, el 16 de abril de 2000, cuando Brady fue seleccionado en la sexta ronda del draft de la NFL, Young había cumplido su primer cumpleaños apenas dos días antes.

En segundo lugar, a pesar de toda su emoción, Young realmente no atrapó a Brady. Ha tenido una buena temporada de novato en general, pero Brady solo fue capturado dos veces la semana pasada, y tampoco fue Young.

En tercer lugar, obtenemos la lección de liderazgo: la mirada a cómo Brady lidera a los jugadores más jóvenes.

Después del juego, Young buscó a Brady mientras los equipos se mezclaban en el campo para felicitarse entre sí. Siguió un breve pero instructivo intercambio.

Aquí está el registro rápido. Brady fue el primero en hablar, por lo que sabemos.

Brady: Hola, Chase. Forma de jugar, hermano.

Joven: Te aprecio. Eres la verdadera cabra. Pero necesito algo de ti.

Young: (se pone la camiseta de Brady) Necesito esto.

Brady: Te lo traeré. Te lo enviaré. Muy bien hombre, buena suerte.

Sí, fue breve. Y para ser justos, Brady tiene la reputación de ser exuberante en el campo después de los juegos.

Después de su victoria en el Super Bowl en 2019, me senté y vi el video que muestra su amor por casi todos los jugadores, entrenadores y propietarios que conoció en el mediocampo.

Siento que esta fue una de las miles de conversaciones similares que Brady ha tenido con jugadores de toda la liga durante las últimas dos décadas.

Pero mira lo que está haciendo. Comienza con un cumplido a Young. Y más tarde, cuando Young, por así decirlo, le pide la camiseta a Brady, inmediatamente se ofrece a enviársela como recuerdo.

Si no estás en la NFL, vale la pena ver este breve video a continuación para ver el contexto.

Imagina lo que se necesita para competir contra alguien del más alto nivel, después de hablar durante una semana sobre cómo se pondrán en contacto contigo y luego pasar todo un juego haciéndolo, solo para hacerlo. un total de 180 después de eso y ofrecer respeto, orientación y literalmente la camisa de su espalda.

¿Viene con madurez? ¿Amor por el juego? ¿Un cálculo estratégico que, bueno, nunca se sabe que algún día podría estar en un equipo que necesita un ala defensiva de alto nivel?

No lo sé. Sin embargo, si es un emprendedor líder, esto es algo que debe recordar la próxima vez que tenga la oportunidad de entretener a una estrella en ascenso en la empresa de la competencia.

Nunca se sabe cuál será el futuro. Pero si cree que Brady sabe lo que está haciendo, es posible que ahora sepa cómo actuar.

Brady, on the other hand is 43; squarely in the demographics of Generation X. In fact, on April 16, 2000, when Brady was selected in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, Young had just had his first birthday two days before.

n

Second, for all his bluster, Young didn't actually get Brady. He had a good rookie season overall, but last week, Brady was only sacked twice, and it wasn't Young either time.

n

Third, we get the leadership lesson: the glimpse of how Brady leads younger players.

n

After the game, as the teams mingled on the field to congratulate one another, Young sought out Brady. A short but instructive exchange followed.

n

Here's the quick transcript. Brady actually spoke first as far as we can tell.

n

Brady: Hey, Chase. Way to play, bro.

n

Young: I appreciate you. You're the real GOAT. I need something from you, though.

n

Brady: What do you need?

n

Young: (tugging Brady's jersey) I need this off you. 

n

Brady: I'll get it to you. I'll send it to you. All right man, good luck to you.

n

n

Yes, it was short. And in fairness, Brady has a reputation for being effusive on the field after games. 

n

After his Super Bowl win in 2019, for example, I sat back and watched the video of him professing love to almost every player, coach, and owner that he ran into at midfield.

n

So, I get the sense this was one of thousands of similar exchanges Brady has had with players around the league over the past two decades.

n

Look at what he does, though. He starts off with a compliment to Young. And later, when Young quasi-demands Brady's jersey, he instantly offers to send it him as a souvenir.

n

Again, if you're not into the NFL, it's worth watching this very short video below to see the context.

n

n

n

Imagine what it takes to be able to compete against someone at the highest level -- after they've spent a week talking about how they're going to get you, and then spent an entire game trying to do it -- only to do a complete 180 afterward, and offer respect, leadership, and literally the shirt off your back.

n

Is it something that comes with maturity? Love of the game? A strategic calculation that, hey, you never know, I might be on a team at some point that needs a top-tier defensive end?

n

I don't know. But if you're a business leader, it's worth remembering the next time you have a chance to chat up a rising star at a competitor's company.

n

You never know what the future might hold. But if you think Brady knows what he's doing, you might now know how to act.
