Leadership lessons

Last night I attended an Aspen Institute talk on leadership by New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin at the Roosevelt House at Hunter College. 

Fortunately, there was more talk of the importance of collaboration and hard work than there was of actual football (for surely it would have been lost on me), so I could actually follow what he was saying. 

With the admirable Coach Coughlin

With the admirable Coach Coughlin

As a twice Super Bowl winning coach, he knows a thing or two about getting the best performances out of a team for optimal results, and I found his talk both inspiring and aspirational as I take my own journey in life and strive for my personal definition of success.
